BGBC, did you make make the barleywine and add the rum soaked oak? I am thinking of doing that same thing when I brew up my barleywine in the new year! Would love any insight or advice you have on adding the rum cubes.

Just to report back on this, I opened my first bottle of this. Tastes great. It's maybe a little thin for the style for me, and the oak/rum character is not overpowering. If I did it again I would add a little more oak and maybe pour in some of the rum, especially as the flavors will meld more with time.

I added the same cubes (soaking in the same rum this whole time) to a sour blackberry cider I've got going. I think it could use the tannins, we'll see how that turns out now.
Bottled/Drinking: Apfelwein, Leaping Goats Coffee Brown Ale (v1 & v2), Anniversary Barleywine, Spring Cleaning IPA, High Ground Gose, Vanilla Rhubarb Mead
Primary/Secondary: Sour Blackberry Cider, Brett Saison
