Occasionally, I'll draw off half a liter and refill. Taking 2 liters at a time means that it will take a few weeks for the blend to get back up to speed. Keeping the barrel full is half the secret. I can't tell you the other half.

Half a secret is better than none. And a glass half full is better than one half empty.

I was actually thinking about sharing it with someone as it came 80% Alc/Vol.
So empty half into another barrel and water it down to 40%. Another barrel was sold to a local fisherman and he is giving away a bottle of rum to each boat at a fishing tournamnet next week. Time to dust off the fishing rods!!

I know this isn't rum, but you can buy Jack Daniels Single Barrel Whiskey by the barrel. http://www.jdsinglebarrel.com/unique.htm
If you want to part with $8400-9600!

It looks like they bottle it for you, and then give you the barrel.

I want to apologize for not thanking people for these replies sooner. I had given up hope that my thread would get posted (I'm sure the mods needed to approve a new poster to prevent spam). Great info.

Burr and Davies are now the proud owners of 195 Litres of two year old Angostura rum at 80% alc/vol. The wooden cask is ageing slowly in my office. There is a great welcome aroma when I open my office in the morning and it makes a great coversation piece!!! I will be tasting rum from a similar barrel later today, so it will be interesting to see what it tastes like, as it is named "Bite Me Rum", after a local fishing charter company. I provided a couple of cases of bottles for the first batch so I better get a couple of samples!! I will let Robert know what I think as I know Robin tried some already. I hope my glass is big enough.
