Orphan Barrel's Scarlet Shade 14 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey is a captivating expression of time-honored distillation practices and the art of aging. With a lineage spanning 14 years, this rye whiskey is a testament to patience, craftsmanship, and the transformative power of wood and time.

Nose: The aroma is a delightful dance between the spiciness characteristic of rye and the sweetness of aged oak. There are pronounced notes of dried apricot, toasted rye bread, and a hint of cinnamon. As you immerse yourself further, undertones of leather and tobacco emerge, reminiscent of a well-kept vintage study.

Palate: The initial sip offers a robust and spicy rye profile, complemented by flavors of dark cherries, candied orange peel, and a touch of anise. As it evolves on the palate, there's a harmonious blend of caramel, vanilla, and a hint of dark chocolate, creating a rich tapestry of flavors that is both complex and inviting.

Finish: The finish is long, warm, and slightly smoky. It leaves behind a lingering taste of molasses, a touch of espresso, and a sprinkle of black pepper. The subtle smokiness, combined with the spicy rye backbone, makes for a finish that is both memorable and beckoning for another sip.
