Orphan Barrel "Barterhouse" 20 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1158841 96 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is from a series of old and rare limited-edition whiskies released by Diageo from their Stitzel-Weller warehouses. It's silky and surprisingly gentle for a 20-year-old whiskey, with notes of creamy caramel, brown sugar and touches of tropical fruit and allspice. It finishes remarkably long, with gentle vanilla sweetness.  (9/2014)

90 points Whisky Advocate

 Surprisingly lacking in oak intensity, given its age. Very creamy and soothingly sweet, with notes of honeyed vanilla, crème brûlée, sultana, orange creamsicle, peach cobbler, and a subtle array of tropical fruit. Soft and mellow on the finish. It’s very easy-drinking and should be enjoyable under most moods and circumstances. (JH)  (6/2014)

K&L Notes

The mysterious 20-year-old expression arrives! The Old Barterhouse is the most talked about American whiskey of 2014, and it's got the gusto to back up the hype. The rich, spicy, and full-bodied palate bursts with sweet vanilla and creamy corn, showcasing the richness that only 20 years in a new charred barrel can offer.

This has got to be the greatest bourbon I have had the privilege of drinking so far! The color, scent and taste are all amazing. Caramel and vanilla shine on through, and open up new dimensions of flavor after my ice melts a little. This beautifully made bourbon showed me the huge difference between ten and twenty years of aging. This bourbon is for those who really love to drink them-worth every penny!

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
