Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 20 Year Old Bourbon 750ml
Buy Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 20 Year Old Bourbon – Rhetoric 20 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the first of the Rhetoric brand releases from the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company. Diageo’s Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company is a series of bottles that came from barrels that were abandoned or forgotten at rickhouses and distilleries. Aged 20 years and the first of the Rhetoric Series, this has become one of the most sought after Orphan Barrel bottles due to its scarcity. Each sip starts with a smoky, leathery nose that translates into vanilla oak, toasted rye, and dried fruits, and concludes with a long, full finish of cherry blossom and bitter chocolate. Buy Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 20 Year Old Bourbon is part of the Orphan Barrel Project. It is the first of the annual Rhetoric bottlings which are released progressively to show what extended ageing will do to a ‘control batch’ of familiar tasting bourbon. Distilled in 1994, these barrels were reportedly “found in the old Stitzel-Weller warehouses”.
