Taste and Properties
NOSE: Caramel, Vanilla, Soft Oak
Taste: Predominant oak stands out but is not as overpowering as you would expect in a 25-year old Bourbon. Wheated bourbons typically age well, and this ORVW follows suit. The sweet sugars hold up and provide an excellent balance and flavor complexity to the oak. The proof point is just right with this expression. It’s straight down the middle, aged wheated bourbon that is very nice. I expected to get smacked in the face with the oak, similar to Diageo’s Orphan Barrel Whoop & Holler, but this ORVW is in a different league entirely.
The finish on this whiskey is mid-range with very little thickness and bite.
Again, surprising for a bourbon aged a quarter century—and it tastes as good as it looks!.
This bourbon is made by the same company that has been making bourbon since 1823. And this is no ordinary Bourbon. It’s aged for an incredible 25 years in charred oak barrels. The result is a whiskey that has undergone such a long aging process that it starts to develop a reddish-brown color and a smooth texture.
It has a dark amber color with hints of gold and red; the aroma is warm and sweet, with notes of vanilla, caramelized sugar, and dried fruits. This Old Rip Van Winkle 25 taste is rich and smooth, with flavors of oak spice and honey. The finish is long and lingering, with lingering aftertastes of woody sweetness and spice
