The third release from Diageo’s Orphan Barrel initiative is slated for june.
Diageo’s Orphan Barrel line of rare whiskies will expand to a third release in June with Rhetoric. As reported by WhiskyCast in February, Rhetoric is a 20-year-old Bourbon distilled at both the Old and New Bernheim distilleries in Louisville and matured in the warehouses at nearby Stitzel-Weller Distillery.
A little different from the Old Blowhard and Barterhouse releases, Rhetoric is planned as a progressive annual release. This means we can expect to see a new release each year with an older age statement. So, next year we can expect to see a 21 year version of this Bourbon.
It will have a suggested retail price of $85 and bottled at 45%.
