Orphan Barrel "Forged Oak" 15 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1197476 91 points Whisky Advocate

 The fourth release (and best so far) in Diageo’s Orphan Barrel series. This bourbon was distilled at what was then called the George T. Stagg distillery (now Buffalo Trace) and spent the last several years maturing at Stitzel-Weller. It’s nicely balanced and not over-oaked, with spice (clove, cinnamon), oak resin, and leather, along with sweet notes (honeyed fruit, soft vanilla, coconut custard) and a nice creamy texture. Better than most 20-plus year old bourbons on the market. (JH, Summer 2015)  (4/2015)

Wine Enthusiast

 This 15-year-old Bourbon was distilled at the New Bernheim Distillery and found in the old Stitzel-Weller Warehouses (both in Louisville, KY), then bottled in Tullahoma, TN. The aroma and palate show bold vanilla and a subtle waft of mesquite smoke. It finishes long and drying, with clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice. (KN)  (7/2015)

K&L Notes

The new offering from Diageo's Orphan Barrel operation is a 15-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey distilled at the Bernheim Distillery in Louisville. It features a very low rye content in the mashbill and is already selling out across the country. These Orphan Barrels are the remnant of long-defunct brands of bourbon or blended whiskey that have found new life in this special series. Sip on this and wonder where this whiskey might have gone otherwise. I think we're all glad it ended up here. Limit 1 bottle per customer.

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.
