The next iteration of Orphan Barrel’s progressively aged series, RHETORIC ™ Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Aged 21 Years speaks to whiskey enthusiasts with much persuasiveness as another year in the barrel bursts with new smells, flavors and tastes. This evolutionary process bangs a louder beat to the dance of discourse as the liquid is richer and more complex with a slightly higher proof. As connoisseurs clamor for new experiences, this offering is certainly at the center of the discussion.
Aromas of cherry, sweet tobacco, honey and leather build upon the oak, fruit, vanilla and caramel of its counterpart with new tastes of sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, baking spices and honey. Beginning with an oaky and leathery nose hinting of vanilla, caramel and honey, Rhetoric 21-Year-Old tastes of charred wood, black pepper spice, dark chocolate and baking spices before a long, woody finish.
