Orphan barrels are barrels that were found in a warehouse and are then combined with other aged whiskey to create their own blend. Rhetoric is the first orphan barrel that I have tried (thank you Ryan of Whiskey Street). I know that these whiskeys are bottled at the Dickel Distillery in Tullahoma, TN. Good find if you can get your hands on it.
Nose: Caramel and sweet sugars
Tastes: Smooth, mild peat, caramel and vanilla.
Great sipping whiskey. Definitely worth the money to have in your collection. Remember when its gone, its gone.
