Of Weyerbacher Oak Barrels, Chain Saws, and Flower Pots
Yes, I gone and done it. What do you get when you cut open a Weyerbacher oak barrel? Sweet overpowering aromas of whiskey drifting across the lawn. The charred innards of the barrel were obviously still holding on to quite a bit of the whiskey profile. Fun times! (And, yes, I cut it in half to make the ubiquitous whiskey barrel flower/herb planters! Hey, it's more cost effective than buying at Home Depot :)
