From the distillery: "After six and a half years of aging, the bourbon from both barrels expressed distinct flavor notes of wood, caramel, and vanilla, as well as pepper flavors drawn from the oak. Another observation from the experiment was the short wave infrared light seemed to affect more of the inner layers of the wood, while the medium wave infrared light affected the surface and medium layers."

Entries will be vetted for duplicative names, addresses and other information, and duplicates will be deleted from the lottery pool.
