Kentucky Whiskey | Bourbon Whiskey
Orphan Barrel Rhetoric 22 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the eighth release from the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company and the third in the Rhetoric series of progressively aged whiskeys. This Bourbon carries a higher proof at 90.4. The label is designed in tribute to the oak barrels in which the whiskey aged, discovered at the old Stitzel-Weller Warehouses in Louisville, KY. The Bourbon was originally distilled at the historic Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, KY, and is hand-bottled in Tullahoma, Tennessee. The mash bill for Rhetoric Whiskey is 86% corn, 8% barley, and 6% rye. Aged two years longer than the first release, it is slightly more mature and carries a higher proof. The whiskey will continue to be progressively aged and re-released annually at a year older, allowing whiskey aficionados to collect the series and compare the whiskeys side-by-side. Beginning with hints of toasted grains, cherries, and oak wood, Rhetoric 22 Year Old tastes of toasted oak, dark chocolate with ripe banana and baking spices of clove and anise. The finish is long and woody, ending with dark chocolate notes. Enjoy!
