Orphan Barrel "Lost Prophet" 22 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
Regular price $494.95
Nose: Slightly floral, sweet, hard caramel candy, and a bit of spice with a very healthy amount of oak.
Palate: Lost Prophet has a glorious mouth feel that exudes quality. The experience is round, velvety, and full. The taste is not overly sweet and countered well by a clove-like spice with the presence of cinnamon within the caramel flavor. There is a respectable amount of oak that is well-balanced for having spent such a prolonged period of time in contact with wood.
Finish: Lovely burn that I did not expect from a 22 year old bourbon. The finish capped off the drink in a warm and friendly way. This is a bourbon to be savored slowly on a cool autumn evening.
In short, I truly enjoyed this bourbon. Perhaps there is no greater indicator of enjoyment as how quickly one reaches to refresh a glass. I found myself wanting more of this whiskey immediately each and every time I sat down to acquaint myself with it. (Whiskeywash)
