CAUTION: It must be kept in mind that the smaller the wine barrel size, the higher it's inner surface area ratio to the contents get. This basically means that the smaller the barrel, the faster the wine contents will oaken.

Therefore it is advised that any wine stored in such small wooden casks is regularly checked to avoid over tanning. Initially, wines or port held in such small barrels should be tasted daily or every two days to make sure that the oakening levels are the ones you desire.
