The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. has "accidentally" added a new special blend of whiskey to the family. A batch of a 17-year-old Kentucky bourbon was accidentally mixed with barrels of a much younger whiskey. This error turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as the older bourbon wasn't marred, but was transformed into something surprisingly special... which the brand calls "The Gifted Horse." Serving as the 7th addition to Orphan Barrel family collection (for those who are keeping count, Rhetoric had 20 AND 21 yo version), the new whiskey comes in at 115 proof, boasting unique tasting notes of creamy caramel, Bosc pear and fruit cake. The fruity notes become more apparent with a splash of water, says the brand.
Beginning with a nose hinting at apple skin, almond, toffee, raisins and slight milk chocolate, The Gifted Horse has unique tasting notes of creamy caramel, Bosc pear and fruit cake. This unusual blend's fruity notes become more apparent with a splash of water.
