Is there any colour leakage from the wood?

Initially – yes. For the first few fills, and especially the first one, the tannin in the wood (which gives whiskey its colour in whiskey barrels) leaches out into the water. The sanitiser used accelerates this action, chlorine more so than bromine. The water will appear brown but is in no way harmful and with progressive water changes this leaching will gradually disappear.
