    Virgin oak, it came toasted but I added a char to it yes. Brings out the sweetness of the wood nicely

    It's funny that it only gives that small amount of colour, IMO. My piece (a 90gram piece of stave) turned this rum deep gold overnight...

    Looking at your picture I think you charred your staves a bit more heavily than I did mine.

    Yes mine was charred all the way to "crocodile skin" like they call it. Literally burned to coal on the surface, and then rapidly watered down.
