Orphan Barrel The Gifted Horse American Whiskey Tasting Notes

Nose: Easily summed up as sweet, mild, and leaning on the basic side of the scale. Notes of vanilla, sweet corn, citrus, and a bit of dark fruit are wrapped up with a caramel bow. There’s a bit of youth on the nose that is well balanced by a faint hint of age from oak undertones.

Palate: The wood comes on strong followed by some notes of corn heavy toasted grain, caramel and vanilla. Some light notes of anise, rye spice, citrus peel and ashy char that builds sip after sip. There is a strong tannic character, like over-seeped black tea, that glides along the whiskey and dries out the mouth as it heads to the finish. 

Finish: Harsh is an understatement here. This finishes with the heat of a barrel proof whiskey without the additional intensity of flavors that generally comes with it. Oak is once again the dominating flavor on the finish.
