Lost Prophet Becomes Fourth Bourbon to Join Family of Rare Bourbon Whiskeys

Kim and I are big fans of Orphan Barrel bourbons, so much so we are actually collecting a few the three previous releases and are looking forward to trying this one as well. We are avid fans of the craft cocktail, but sometimes we are looking for something simpler but with as much depth of as any cocktail we drink. Their first release 20-year Barterhouse is the first bourbon that Kim could drink straight and still remains to be her favorite. 26-year Old Blowhard is still at the top of my list with its complex but smooth taste.

With interest in America’s native spirit at an all-time high, aged bourbons have captured the imaginations of whiskey enthusiasts, for whom learning about older whiskeys can be a window into the past and a uniquely fascinating sipping experience. To satisfy these discerning consumers, The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. today announced the fourth addition to its portfolio – Lost Prophet 22-year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. was created in early 2014 to locate forgotten barrels of whiskey from around the world and share them with discerning adult fans, who are encouraged to sip slowly and responsibly. Lost Prophet follows three previous Orphan Barrel bourbon releases: Barterhouse 20-year, Old Blowhard 26-year and Rhetoric 20-year.

Lost Prophet (90.1 proof / 45.05% ABV) stocks were found in the Stitzel-Weller warehouses in Louisville, Ky., and distilled in 1991 in Frankfort, Ky. Beginning with a nose hinting of honey, dried fruit, apricot and clove, Lost Prophet has a silky, full bodied taste of spice cake, vanilla and leather, with a sweet, smoky finish. Lost Prophet will be on shelves in mid-December for a suggested retail price of $120.

Lost Prophet, like the rest of the Orphan Barrel releases so far, was hand bottled in Tullahoma, Tenn. As was the case with Old Blowhard, a 26-year Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey previously released by Orphan Barrel, Lost Prophet will be a one-time release.

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. is headquartered in Tullahoma, Tenn. Like the other Orphan Barrel whiskeys, Lost Prophet has long awaited a place to call home. Orphan Barrel reminds consumers to enjoy its rare and delicious whiskeys responsibly.
