    Musicphan...What does this do to the drum...wouldn't it leave a residual of whiskey flavor on future batches? How much alcohol is actually absorbed into the coffee? If there is a fair amount of alcohol it would ignite when dropping coffee over 400 degrees..I have sold my fair amount of "flavored" coffee over the years...I always add the flavor after I roast. Just curious how this worked.

    Topher - I have actually never done it... I did extensive research on the process and decided my biz volume couldn't justify the barrel expense. From my understanding is that there is no residual flavoring in the barrel. Its simply a tiny bit of flavoring the green picked up pre-roast. From what i tasted, its a very nuanced flavor addition. The one I enjoyed the most was from a wine barrel vs. spirit barrel. There are a bunch of people out there doing some type of barrel aging of green. Check out Dark Matters in Chicago... they are doing some interesting barrel aging.
