....So, let me ask this ;
If you buy the cheap rum,( Ron Rico comes to mind)...then age it in an oak barrel you might have something drinkable ?

Might make good water containers also when the wine/whiskey runs out.

Oak barrels are better as they are small in size and good quality. Oak barrels are used for aging.

celenoglu Adding oak to any type of container (glass, stainless etc.) is not the same as a oak barrel. The barrel in a way breathes and adds more flavors to the drink than oak parts in a container.

aeventyr60 We visited the town of Tequila while cruising in Mexico a few years back. Bought a 10 litre wood keg full of Reposado Tequila. That's 100% Agave, kinda like a single malt scotch. This was aged for a year and then several more months as we sailed down to the Galapagos. We cracked the keg of Tequila on the Equator and toasted King Neptune heartily. Needless to say our Pacific Crossing was one of many Tequila Sunsets!

wilnatp Haven't thought too hard on, it but you got me going now. I am a home brewer and have been wanting to barrel age some beer. Usually a bit of liquid smoke and some vanilla extract is what I will use, but this sounds like a definite "have to try." Thanks for the post.

MarkofSeaLife On the right sort of boat and in the right spot it would look great and be a nice talking point. A 1 or 2 litre would be fun.

Actually cheaper wineries do just that. The best advertise aged in a genuine oak barrel. That way you get 100% oak flavor and 0% plastic flavor. I have never heard of a whiskey maker resort to such, as the high relative price of spirits deters such mishandling. And most spirit drinkers are fiercly defensive of their favorite flavor and traditional distilling technique. Any changes would go over about as well as the "new coke".
