As Orphan Barrel was preparing their next Orphan Barrel release, the unthinkable happened. They made a whopper of a mistake, emptying barrels of much younger whiskey into a batch of beautiful 17-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
With bated breath, Orphan Barrel distillers tasted this monumental blunder…and quickly agreed this was one gift horse they shouldn’t look in the mouth. With a final balance of roughly 39% 17-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and 61% 4-year-old Corn Whiskey, and Indiana Bourbon Whiskey, this unusual blend has aromas of apple skins, almond and toffee, and tasty hints of creamy caramel, oak resin and bosac pear.
This gaffe is your gift. We hope you’ll agree that this happy mistake created something surprisingly special.
