So I'm looking to purchase a new barrel this year and visited my local shop yesterday. They have Franch oak from Allary and Hungarian oak from Kalina copper trade. I already own a 55 litre French Allary barrel and it has served me well for 3 years. I was looking to try something new and go for the Hungarian oak this time (100 litre). The only thing holding me back is that the prices between French and Hungarian are very similar. I guess my dilemma is do I stick with another French barrel that I already know (tatste and outcome) or go for Hungarian and try something new... Do any of you have experience with both? I am in Canada so Vadai is not an option here unfortunately.
