Orphan Barrel

Orphan Barrel is the fifth offering in Diageo’s Orphan Barrel line.

It is made from a mashbill of 86% corn, 7% barley, and 6% rye.Orphan Barrel Forged Oak 15 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Orphan Barrel Forged Oak 15 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Notes

Nose: It has a campfire nose, lots of wood and spice with candied walnuts, licorice, dark red fruits, and crème brûlée under the initial oak attack.

Palate: On the palate, the oak and spice assert themselves but eventually give way to ginger, plum, orange bitter, tobacco, and coffee.

Finish: During the warm, lingering finish one finds orange bitters, and pepper.
