No, this is not a real whiskey barrel. However, it is more than a planter; the construction is very sturdy. I have two on my front lawn; they've been there since last year. They still look as nice as the day I bought them. And, the perennials I planted last spring are starting to grown.
2 bags of 2 cubic ft will mostly fill it or 3 bags of 1.5 cu ft, I personally did 2 bags of 2 cu ft raised bed soil and had about .5 cu ft of pine bark chips in the bottom to aid with drainage. The total volume is approximately 4.5 cu ft.
Hi Neats. Thank you for your question. Each pho barrel is approximately 6.46 cubic feet each. Depending on your location, the Kellogg Raised Bed Potting Soil may be your best buy. You will want about a 2-inch space or more from the top of the pot. Out here on the West Coast it is available by the 2-cu ft bag. https://www.homedepot.com/s/Kellogg%2520raised%2520Bed%2520Potting%2520Soil?NCNI-5 Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Yes, it is frost resistant. I have two of them on my front lawn. We've had snow, ice and freezing temperatures. They still look as beautiful as the day I bought them. (I purchased two of them last summer.)
I would say, 3.5

This wood is treated; and, no, I wouldn't use it to grow vegetables. Untreated wood is better for vegetable growing.
