Rhetoric Bourbon, 20yo, 45% – Diageo’s Orphan Barrel series

Malt Fascination

Diageo’s has been releasing ‘Orphan Barrels‘ for about a year now. It’s a series of premium bourbons from different distilleries, and sometimes even a blend from various places. They’re priced at a relative premium in America. When they would come to Europe they’d be far from affordable, most likely. Generally when a $ 90 comes across the ocean, it’s costing close to € 200 nowadays.

Rhetoric is from Bernheim distillery and apparently showcases their classic flavor profile. I don’t have much experience with Bernheim and therefore don’t have a clue what that means.

The Orphan Barrels is called that because the barrels for these releases were forgotten, or so they say. I highly doubt that in this day and age many barrels are left unindexed, and actually forgotten. I’d say the warehouse managers have been saving these for a special project for a couple years now. That’s fine too…
