Rhetoric 24 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon 750ml
Aged for 24 years and bottled at 90.8 proof, the Rhetoric Orphan Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon is a scintillating drinking experience defined by stone fruit, spice, and warm caramel overtones. Part of Diageo's unique Orphan Barrel project, where forgotten or unused barrels and blends are uncovered and repurposed, the Rhetoric is a fantastically complex and extremely rare whiskey, and the final bourbon in Diageo's 5 year series. Originally found in the Stitzel-Weller Warehouses, distilled in 1990-1993, the Rhetoric is another fine example of Orphan barrels reputation for unique, one-of-a-kind taste.

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.

Perfect. Nose is exceptionally intriguing. Profound oak somehow or another like a Woodford Twofold Oaked or 1910. It gives a singed marshmallow trademark. Going further I get vanilla and caramelized banana. Too rich. Trace of mint and cinnamon. I could go through the entire day sniffing this on a chilly day by a fire. Smooth sleek mouth feel. Truly covers the tongue and mouth. Chocolate and maple on the tongue. On the swallow extraordinary chocolate and oak. The oak truly kicks you and I like it. Tannic and drying right away. Marshmallow and burn return and those vanilla truly open up and wait on the legs. Its so sleek that the legs last for some time and you can feel it gradually running down your throat. The more it opens up and I conform to it the more the sugars and pleasantness develop over the oak components. Let this open for 30 minutes and it shows signs of improvement. I am dazzled by this. The Wild Turkey 17 was the most established whiskey I have attempted before this. WT17 was a more profound encounter yet I truly burrow the pleasantness originating from this as it opens up.
