Orphan Barrel Introduces The Gifted Horse Whiskey

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. has "accidentally" added a new special blend of whiskey to the family.

A batch of a 17-year-old Kentucky bourbon was accidentally mixed with barrels of a much younger whiskey. This error turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as the older bourbon wasn't marred, but was transformed into something surprisingly special... which the brand calls "The Gifted Horse."

Serving as the seventh addition to its portfolio, the new whiskey comes in at 115 proof, boasting unique tasting notes of creamy caramel, Bosc pear and fruit cake. The fruity notes become more apparent with a splash of water, says the brand.

The Gifted Horse from Orphan Barrel is available nationwide for $50 USD.
