Just picked up a 15 gallon oak barrel from Corsair Distilleries. It was used once for rye whiskey and is in unbelievable condition. It was originally made by Barrel Mill. It's about twice the size that I wanted but cheaper than any good 5 gallon ones that I could find. Probably too big for the hobby guys and too small for the micro's. I paid $125 for it plus $30 for shipping. Smelled REAL NICE when I opened it up. I filled it with water and zero leaks. After just 12 hours it has sucked in 10 oz of water. Gonna give it another day or so and then start filling with rum.
Here's their site.
Although they have 5 gallon barrels listed, they won't have anymore available.
Anyone have a line on some NICE 5 gallon ones here in the states? Preferably once used. Not interested in the Mexican junk or poorly built ones. Also if you have pics of your barrels, post em up.
