The Gifted Horse American Whiskey 750ml
According to the creators of the Orphan Barrel collection, The Gifted Horse was an accidental blend. It’s comprised of 51% 4 year old MGP bourbon, 38.5% 17 year old Bernheim bourbon, and 10.5% 4 year old MGP corn whiskey according to the company’s press release. This is the seventh release in the Orphan Barrel line and the first without a double digit age statement. The actual age of the whiskies used are a blend of 4 year old bourbon & corn whiskey along with a 17 year old bourbon. The simple fact that this is an error means that it is extremely unique. It’s not exactly common for a major whiskey company to mix corn whiskey into aged bourbon stock.

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.

I purchased two rare Orphan Barrel products and received a 10% off special which saved me $80! The staff at Frootbat were very helpful in processing my order. I would not hesitate to use them in the future. The bottles were shipped separately to a relative's address in Chicago...which I would not do ever again. The FedEx drivers there just drive by without stopping until you decide to change the final location to a Walgreen's pick-up store (which was a bit easier I must say). Eh...

Not the best one in the line at all. Try it if you are into the series otherwise if you are looking for a really good American blend go for Barrell at lower price point.

Tasting Notes
Nose
Easily summed up as sweet, mild, and leaning on the basic side of the scale. Notes of vanilla, sweet corn, citrus, and a bit of dark fruit are wrapped up with a caramel bow. There’s a bit of youth on the nose that is well balanced by a faint hint of age from oak undertones.
Taste
Strong oak upfront with vanilla following in tow. A faint hint of caramel sweetness struggles to pull through the oak. Extremely basic and limited showing of flavors makes you wonder if they were even there in the first place. Its dearth of flavors and absence of memorable characteristics make this a soulless whiskey.
Finish
This finishes with the heat of a barrel proof whiskey without the additional intensity of flavors that generally comes with it. Oak is once again the dominating flavor on the finish, but I don’t get the sense that it’s silencing other flavors. Like the palate, the finish lacks a noticeable range in flavor.
