I oak to taste I recommend if you do and a fishing line to the spiral. Makes it easy to remove the spiral.March 27, 2014Vanilla OakAdds a nice vanilla oak taste top wine. This is nicer tasting than the chips I tried. Because of the large surface area you should taste it as its soaking so you stop when the flavor is right otherwise it can become overpowering.February 2, 2014Best quality oak availableI've tried several types of oaks and this is easily my favorite. Great vanilla and oak flavor and aroma. Its different from American oak, and imparts it's oakiness very fast due to the shape.December 1, 2013Very good oak flavorThis is a much nicer tasting oak than some of the cubes I've tried. It has a lot of surface area so it quickly saturates the wine and you need to stay on top of it and sample it frequently.September 8, 2013Its like having a barrelThis is a lot better than buying barrels. It gives a flavorful Oak taste to my wines for a great price. It has a good vanilla taste to it and a nice aroma.August 14, 2013Good Oak flavorIt has a good and strong oak flavor and aroma. This is my favorite oak of the 4 types I've tried. I usually taste my wine after 6 weeks, to see how the oak flavor is. I let it go a week and taste again. This way I get it just right.August 2, 2013Sure beats buying a barrel!I used one of these in a "Barrel aged" stout I was making. only left the spirals in for about 20-30 days and got just the oak flavor I needed. Great product, easy clean up, costs way less than a barrel, and you don't have to take up the space a barrel would to store before/when not in use. Great product!July 15, 2013Nice vanilla flavorThis takes better than the american toasted oak cubes I've used in the past. The flavor is nicer and stronger. It's got a lot of surface area, so make sure you taste your wine every so often so you don't over oak it.May 18, 2013gives a strong oak flavorThese oak spirals added a great flavor and aroma to my wine. I prefer French Oak because American oak adds more vanilla and sweetness. To avoid over-oaking my wine I taste a small sample every week starting at week six.March 11, 2013
