WHAT ARE BARREL CHAR LEVELS AND HOW DO THEY AFFECT THE WAY MY WHISKEY TASTES?





Fortunately for those of us already drowning in whiskey and spirits minutiae, “char levels” are exactly what they sound like: the degree to which a distiller chars a fresh white American oak barrel before filling it with a spirit meant for maturation. (Wine barrels and fortified wines are generally toasted, not charred.) And while the purpose of charring seems sort of intuitive—a charred surface yields a smoky flavor, right?—the effects are far more complicated. And delicious.
