The Orphan Barrel Archive Collection showcases six variations of whiskeys drawn from a larger pool. Some of these variants have already appeared and disappeared in the market. The creator provides more details on each selection, and the packaging consists of a custom wooden crate with a front panel that opens and folds back, revealing the bottles. The interior of the crate is padded and imprinted with different Orphan Barrel icons.
Barterhouse: The first release from Orphan Barrel, Barterhouse is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey aged for 20 years. It offers elegant flavors reminiscent of warm spice, biscuit, and buttercream.
Old Blowhard: This limited-release offering preserves a select inventory of 26-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, which was thought to be gone forever. It boasts exuberant flavors with hints of smoke, honey, and a gentle orange peel finish.
