I got myself a barrel a while back, it too had port in it for years. Put some bwko in it for a couple weeks and its really starting to taste good after a few months aging. Just keep good tabs on it as you dont want the port to be too overpowering.
I found after a couple weeks it had pleanty of the porty flavour.. for my liking anyway. Having said that it is mellowing now as all the flavour are blending together.
Next time i should be able to leave my bwko in the barrel longer.
