Orphan Barrel Barterhouse 20 Years Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
First in the Orphan Barrel family collection.
Surprisingly lacking in oak intensity, given its age. Very creamy and soothingly sweet, with notes of honeyed vanilla, crème brûlée, sultana, orange creamsicle, peach cobbler, and a subtle array of tropical fruit. Soft and mellow on the finish. It’s very easy-drinking and should be enjoyable under most moods and circumstances.
It’s very versatile, and the price is right for a 20 year old bourbon.
