Orphan Barrel Whoop and Holler is the latest addition to the Orphan Barrel line and is billed as a year-old American Whiskey, but unlike with some of the releases the company actually does disclose where this one came from — which is awesome. The full details are in the Orphan Barrel Whoop and Holler review below! This is lovely stuff and it has a crispness to it that surprises me. Caramel corn, vanilla taffy, citrus peels, pepper, biscuits, fruit and cocoa with bits of cinnamon, fresh maple bars, baking spice, oak and orchard fruit. It has that corn-driven sweetness that I love in the George Dickel 12 but with a bit more depth and oak-driven complexity. I respect that all palates are different, but mine cannot disagree more with you on this one. Way too astringent for me, but as is only fair to say, to each his own. That one was sooo astringent. It is possible, I had a similar thought because they call it an American Whiskey. That being said, I have agreed with your opinions on the previous OBs so I am excited to at least try a pour of this one.

Maybe, maybe not. I no longer care if they care, or the others who send me samples. Maybe I care. Maybe no one cares even if I care.
As the bourbon market has heated up, many distilleries have released super-aged versions of their core products, some of which have fallen a little flat. Too much time in oak can add an unpleasant, tannic astringency that masks that rich, corn-fed sweetness that makes bourbon so damn delicious to begin with. When I first heard about that age statement, I cringed. It leaves a thick garland of slow-moving beads along the swirl line. The ml review sample not available at retail is housed in a wooden box wrapped in a white hardcover to look just like a book, complete with gold embossed cranes on the cover and a title printed on the spine. Water brings out a little more sweetness — cherry, plum, and buttered johnnycake. Palate: The sweetness in the nose is notably absent in the palate. After a flash of cooked corn, pineapple rind, and fresh chili, things take a flat turn, like eating a candy still wrapped in the paper it came in. Firm astringency leaves the tongue parched. Almond and clove make an appearance in a thin, dry, rather short finish.
