Professional Wine Reviews for Orphan Barrel Distilling Rhetoric Bourbon 25yr Old 91@

Winery
Rhetoric 25 is the sixth and final installment of a series that has been around longer than some distilleries. It started in 2013 with the release of Rhetoric 20, with what parent company Diageo alleges is old stock from the Bernheim Distillery that was actually found in old Stitzel-Weller Warehouses. Needless to say, it’s a complex pedigree. But the whiskey, which was distilled between 1990 and 1993, ended up in their hands, and with a limited number of these gems at their disposal, they elected to release portions of it each year, each time with a higher age statement.Diageo has made it known that the mashbill on these barrels broke down to 86 percent corn, 8 percent barley, and 6 percent rye, which is a low rye bourbon if we’ve ever heard of one.

Producer Orphan Barrel Distilling

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.
