About Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 24 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
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 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. So far Orphan Barrel has only released American whiskey, with expressions like Barterhouse, The Gifted horse, Lost Prophet, and Forged Oak, with Old Blowhard being retired in 2014. The annual progressive release of this Kentucky elixir is in its 24th year.
This Orphan Barrel was discovered at the old Stitzel-Weller Warehouses in Louisville, KY, originally distilled at the historic Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, KY. Rhetoric 24-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon is the ninth release from the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company, fifth in the Rhetoric series. This release has a slight bump in proof, bottled at 45.3% ABV.

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?
Oaky vanilla aromas on the nose, followed by brown sugar and chocolate. The palate opens with flavors of orchard fruits enhanced by subtle baking spice, giving way to a warming finish of caramel and nutmeg.
