The internal size of the small cigar oak barrel is about 4 1/2 inches tall and about 5 inches in diameter at the belly.? These short stogie barrels are great for the small cigars.? Depending on how fat they are you may only be able to hold a few even if they are shorties.? A lot of people also use it for pipe tobacco or other little storage barrels.? I have even seen some people use them as? pen and pencil holders.
How to use the oak barrel to flavor your cigars.? First you want to soak the inside of the barrel with your favorite liquor. You can also soak the humidity beads with your liquor to give the moisture a flavor in the barrel.? Once you have allowed the liquor to soak in the barrel for a few hours by rolling it around on its side then pour the liquor back in your bottle (no sense in wasting it).? Then once the bottom of the barrel has mostly dried then go ahead and drop you cigars inside and put the lid on the barrel.? Give it a few days or however long you want and the liquor flavor will infuse in to the cigars over time.
