Rhetoric 22 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon 750ml
Bottled in 2016 Rhetoric 22 Year Old Bourbon is part of the Orphan Barrel Project and is the third 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”. 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. 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.

About the brand
Designed to uncover some of the whiskey world's rarest hidden treasures, Orphan Barrel is the brainchild of world-renowned liquor magnate Diageo. A truly unique project that sources 'forgotten' or 'abandoned' batches and barrels that distilleries may have left behind or not released for production, Orphan Barrel locates ultra-aged American whiskeys from some of the most famous distilleries around the USA and reinvents their release. Whether it's the spectacular Lost Prophet 22 Year Old, originally distilled at George T. Stagg Distillery, or the scintillating Rhetoric 23 Year Old, which was partially matured at the old Stitzel-Weller Distillery, Orphan Barrel unearths some of the most beautiful and complex 'orphaned' bourbon whiskeys that the United States has to offer, giving them new homes where they can be enjoyed rather than lost in time.

Lighter and better than I expected for the age. I surmise I figured it would be all oak and harsh tannins yet it is very lovely.
