Great gift for a sibling who doesn't really "need" anything. Got the larger one. Check the measurements. It isn't super big so won't be obtrusive in the bar area but still a conversation piece and very personal. Excited for him to open Christmas morning!
it is a gift
To age bourbon
My co-workers and i couldn't pass this up! Our boss loves whiskey so the chance to get him a personalized barrel at such a great price is amazing. It arrived today in perfect condition and a week and a half earlier than expected. He is going to love this and we can't wait until our Christmas party to give it to him.
I bought this as a Christmas present for my dad, a long-time whiskey drinker. I knew that he would think it beautiful and great decoration even if he did not want to actually use it to age and improve whiskey. But I think he will also use it to age and improve whiskey.

LOWER PRICE TO REFLECT SIZE
This gift was a huge hit! The only "complaint" was that when it was taken out of the box, I actually got a splinter in my finger as the dowel rods in the base were SOOO rough! They really should have been sanded down. We sanded them ourselves. This should have been caught/dealt with before shipping.
I purchased this as a Christmas gift, so I have yet to use it but it looks great. Unfortunately, the first barrel I messed up the engraving so I ordered a second one (with a discount thanks to Uncommon Hoods generosity). While I am impressed with the product itself, I'm devastated that not only the first barrel came with leaking bottles of flavor, but so did the second one. I was hoping at least one would not leave me disappointed. The first essence bottles are in the process of being replaced free of charge, but having both of them arriving leaking, I'm not sure I have much hope of the replacement bottles arriving much different. I know that when I reach out to uncommon goods, their customer support will be accommodating, but it's just sad that it happened and with it coming closer to Christmas I'm worried they might not arrive on time. I'm glad I opened the package before just putting it under the tree because it could have put a damper on the day.
This is a really cute gift item for anyone in your life who enjoys drinking whiskey. The personalization makes it unique, and thoughtful. We haven't actually used it yet, so I'm not sure how functional it is, but it's great displayed in your home bar or living room. Four stars only because some of the wood looks cracked, so I'm not sure how well it will hold up.

Was a nice anniversary gift - we could personalize with our name and year of marriage. Looking forward to making something in it.
