Orphan Barrel – The Gifted Horse American Whiskey
This product is something like one of those stories of a pregnancy that was neither expected or planned for but births something truly amazing that is immediately loved by all.
The Gifted Horse is the progeny of a mistaken mixing of a 17 year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon with a 4 year old whiskey at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery. It’s “parents” being a blend of 39% 17 year old whiskey and 61% younger corn whiskey and Indiana bourbon whiskey.
Beginning with a nose hinting at apple skin, almond, toffee, raisins and slight milk chocolate, The Gifted Horse has unique tasting notes of creamy caramel, Bosc pear and fruit cake. This unusual blend’s fruity notes become more apparent with a splash of water.
The Gifted Horse’s package design reflects the lucky fortune in discovering such a unique whiskey, featuring a lighthearted illustrative style, a horseshoe and the prominently featured Gifted Horse image. Hinting at what’s inside the bottle, the weathered red label entices those to discover a whiskey bold and flavorful.
The Gifted Horse was hand bottled in Tullahoma, Tenn. and highly allocated, with no future releases planned.
