I was really shocked to see how quickly it got to where i wanted it. I mean we're talking about a 7% alcohol, 1024 beer - but the oak got to a tasty level in just a matter of 3 days or so and got to a nice whiskey/burbon flavor in a little over a week. Seems to be holding nicely a couple of months later in the bottles.
