Just as the name hints at, Diageo’s new Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company delves deep into the dark, damp recesses of both operating and boarded up old distilleries, looking for rare, orphaned barrels of American Whiskey. To mark their grand entrance into this intriguing, treasure hunting project, Orphan Barrel has discovered and released two new (old) bourbons. The 20-year-old Barterhouse Whiskey ($75) was discovered in old warehouses at the famed Stitzel-Weller facility in Louisville, Kentucky and has a mellow taste with notes of roasted grain, charred oak and a brown sugar finish. The 26-year-old Old Blowhard Whiskey ($150) was also found at Stitzel-Weller and contains exuberant, rich flavors with undertones of smoke and honey followed by a gentle finish – dry and spicy with a hint of orange peel. Both brands are expected to begin appearing on select shelves throughout the U.S. in March 2014 under strict allocation due to limited supply. What’s old, is always new again.
