Orphan Barrel Scarlet Shade 14 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey
This exquisite rye whiskey is distilled by the Diageo-owned Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company, which is known for its unique and rare blends of whiskey.
The Scarlet Shade is a limited-edition release that is aged for 14 years in charred oak barrels, giving it a rich, deep amber color and a complex flavor profile. The nose is filled with notes of vanilla, caramel, and toffee, with hints of spice and a subtle smokiness. On the palate, the whiskey is smooth and mellow, with flavors of dark fruit, oak, and rye spice, and a touch of sweetness from the aging process.
One of the unique features of Orphan Barrel Scarlet Shade is its high rye content, which gives it a distinct spiciness and complexity that is highly sought after by whiskey aficionados. The rye grain used in the whiskey is sourced from various distilleries across North America, giving it a unique blend of flavors and aromas.
This whiskey is bottled at 90 proof, which is slightly higher than the typical proof for rye whiskey. This higher proof gives the Scarlet Shade a more robust flavor and a longer finish, making it ideal for sipping straight or mixing in a classic whiskey cocktail.
