When liquor is barrel aged, a lot of things happen. The alcohol and water extract flavors and sugars from the wood, which adds sweetness, oakiness, and other flavors. The charred surface filters out harsh notes. The movement of oxygen through the wood oxidizes the contents slightly, changing some flavors.
There are several ways of adding oak flavor or barrel aging, but none balance oak with aging like a large barrel does without breaking the bank.
