      Do absolutely nothing. Age your whisky in traditional
      2nd or 3rd
      fill oak then "finish" in your port pipe.
      Glenmorangie pioneered
      this method 10 or 12 years ago using different woods
      and different
      fills. The port finish is the most popular.
      Congrats, you've got
      something special there to experiment with.
