This barrel is being put to rest after being back/forth from Scotland and used for 225 years. It was haunting seeing her alone , against the sooted walls, still very strong after her travels, nicely aged....now waiting to go to a rest area. She (the barrel) is charred inside for fine scotch or whiskey, and has been reconditioned for years. The sooted walls behind her show where deep scratches are made when all the barrels are put into storage as they roll them in for their 5/10/20 year holding area.
