Yum! Make sure you drink the rye too. I've always taken a drink of the whisky I use to soak oak chips on and the character it adds can be amazing. Mind you, you may want to let it age w/o the wood for a bit after aging on the wood before drinking it so it mellows some. I have a jar of Eagle Rare 10 yr that I used to soak an oak spiral. It's been sitting w/o the wood for ~6 months now. Each time I pour a shot, it gets better and better, can't wait to try it in a year!

Well, I ordered a 5lb bag of pecan chunks today. I have a large glass jug that's ready to receive the chips and the hooch. I'm going to go for a medium toast on them, and then re-bottle the whiskey after a year or so.

The plan ultimately will be to make a pecan barleywine aged on bourbon-soaked pecan wood in December, 2013.

I hope the long-game will pay off on this one.

Big chunks. I'd take a mallet & a wood chisel & break them up more. But that's me. More surface area ya know.

I would... but I want to use them again... at least some of them again. My fear is that if I break them down too far, they wouldn't re-toast.

That said, I picked up two more bottles of rye. At $38 a pop, this isn't going to be a cheap endeavor.
