Kentucky Oak 2.5l Barrel
These barrels are made of Brand-Spanking-New Fresh Kentucky Oak and have a medium toast level.
Please bear in mind when filling the barrel that fresh oak is incredibly powerful and absolutely packed full of flavour and aroma.
Given the fact that no other spirit has ever been stored in the barrel, the effect of the oak on the spirit you fill into it will be very forceful. If you’re after creating your own whisky from new-make spirit, or indeed transforming a vodka into something oak-rich and powerful, this is good news. If you’re after adding a subtle barrel-aged note to a light and delicate cocktail or gin, then it’s probably not a good thing – you’d be well advised to store some vodka or ‘something else’ in it for a couple of weeks first.
On receiving the cask the metal hoops may feel a tad loose, don’t worry – this is normal - they will tighten up as the wood expands after the cask is filled.

Hi there! At the moment, there are no plans to order any more of this size of barrel. However, if you're looking for something bigger than the 1 Litre, we do have the 5 Litre version (http://www.masterofmalt.com/barrel/kentucky-oak-barrel/kentucky-toasted-oak-barrel-5-litre-barrel/), which should be with us very soon! --The Chaps at Master of Malt

Hi, please could you let me know when this item is back is stock? As I'm rather keen to purchase the slightly larger oak barrel.
