    Is this still available?
  6. Following! I am assuming these are production barrels made for sherry cask finishing, and not actual solera barrels?

    What other class/types are missing from the chapter 4 table? “Whiskey Specialty” is no where to be seen?

    Whiskey Hypothetical

    From my understanding, you do not need a formula approval for anything you have proposed. Except the “White whiskey” which you probably wont get approved at all. You can call it “White Dog” or Moonshine, or premium dogshit. But unless you get lucky with a clueless TTB agent, the words White and Whiskey wont go next to each other on a label. As it comes off the still it is not yet whiskey, it has to touch cooperage. If it goes into used, or uncharred new barrels, it is corn whiskey. If it goes into new American oak, it is bourbon. Good luck trying to get a “White Whiskey” COLA.

    Our dry mountain climate does not like small barrels. Maybe a more humid climate or supplemental humidification in storage would be more suitable for small barrels. We have harvested 15, 15gallon barrels, each was 50%-70% angel share after 30 months. Harvesting 8, 30 gallon barrels saw 35%-55% angel share at 36 months. We are in a very dry climate. YMMV We have had great luck with the Gibbs Brothers 3 gallon barrels. ~10% angel share annually

    And if you plan on leaving it in a 15gal for more than 2 years be prepared for 50%+ angel share.
