Rhetoric 25 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon 750ml
Aged for 25 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.

It begins with a quick and welcome noseful of Oak followed via caramel and a trace of green apple. A perfection that I dont need to end. Tobacco and calfskin. Feed and a pinch of mint. Ive found another top choice!

Caramel Sweet caramel butterscotch gentle salty saline solution vanilla oak tannin flavor cowhide hints of dried natural product Sweet and salty caramel butterscotch vanilla fiery notes then medium oak and rye consume 5 to 10 seconds in takes over yet mellow for Vagrant Barrel at that point moderate tannin hide followed by nutty calfskin sweet butterscotch caramel vanilla maple cedar cinnamon notes for smooth and complex completion Drops of water present nutty rich tannin cinnamon notes however butterscotch and maple decay. Would probably manage without water. Tasted straight on with the multi year and the 25 is a lot of smoother with unquestionably increasingly complex notes during its long extremely smooth completion
