Mate, I've heard a few blokes talk up the JD wood chips you get from the HBS.

This is the JD essence as close as I found. Just use a really clean neutral. The taste is nearly exact.

I like this too. Wouldn't say its exact as I don't like JD but I like this.
I lightly oak some neutral first and blend down a bit lighter. More like 3-3.5 liters going by flavor. At around $15 a sachet I try to get my bang for buck out of it.
Give it at least a few days to a week before you bother tasting it though as it needs a little time to meld with the spirit and you'll taste bugger all in the first few days. Love the smell of this one too.
