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

Rated 91 by Whisky Advocate
A platform of caramel sweetness comes draped in lovely oak spice with dried flower potpourri—like rose petals and an old-lady’s perfume—along with horehound, cedary oak, and iced tea. The palate veers toward dried fruits—apple rings and dates—with bitter orange peel and a beam of spice that turns peppery on the long finish of tobacco and cedar. The overall impression is lithe, upright, and stately.
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

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
