About Orphan Barrel Copper Tongue 16 Year Old Bourbon
Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company is a dedicated cause, acquiring some of the rarest casks from some of the finest whiskey cellars, and releasing them into the world as a cascade of limited edition, barrel-aged ambrosia. In 2013 bourbon and Tennessee whiskey were labeled the fastest growing product category by volume in the U.S. alcohol business.
The Orphan bottling project was more or less an ingenious response to this boom in the whiskey industry, and an effort to accommodate the vast quantities of leftover product from their monopoly of acquisitions. When Diageo didn't have a place for the acquired product in their blends, they set the spirits aside. Time transformed this new spirit into aged delicacies. In 2013, Orphan Barrel Whiskey was created by Diageo, commercializing a large stock of ultra-aged American whiskeys that it had been maturing at the Stitzel-Weller distillery in Shively Kentucky.
Orphan Barrel Copper Tongue comes from the historic Cascade Hollow Distillery in Tullahoma, Tennessee. These stocks were discovered by Cascade's general manager & distiller Nicole Austine in their single-story rickhouses that are inspired by Scottish barrel storage facilities. Local Cascade Spring water, ingredients from local farmers, and Scottish-inspired rickhouses make for an incredibly unique cask-strength 16-year-old straight bourbon whiskey. The second orphan barrel to come from this distillery, it's a mellow and approachable expression with juicy orange and cedar notes.

There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA. It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
The nose opens with cedar, cornmeal, barrel char, fruit, orange zest, as well as hints of smoke, leather, and cinnamon. On the palate, you'll find plenty of oak and baking spices along with a juicy fruitiness. The finish is medium-long with charred oak and a touch of leather.
