The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. is pleased to announce the latest release from the company: Fable & Folly Finest Quality Whiskey Aged 14 Years. Fable & Folly was crafted from a proprietary blend that includes the last remaining stocks of Barterhouse, Forged Oak and various Rhetoric releases.
When Master Blender Andrew Mackay discovered the last remaining stores of rare, orphaned whiskeys from years past, he thought it was only fitting to share these whiskeys with the world within one bespoke blend.
He married the last remaining stocks of Barterhouse, Forged Oak and various Rhetoric releases with a proprietary blend to create the expression, which pays homage to the original releases yet possesses a distinct profile of its own.
“Fable & Folly honors the quality ingredients that go into it and the ethos of the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co. as a whole,” said Mackay in a release. “In my discoveries of the six orphaned stocks that are part of Fable & Folly, it became clear that blending them would both highlight and enhance the nuances that make these liquids so special. Fable & Folly tells the stories of whiskeys past while exciting aficionados and collectors with a unique new spirit that stands the test of time.”
Fable & Folly is a harmonious creation that uniquely balances age and flavor. This whiskey beautifully accents the rich, smooth character of the orphaned stocks within it, featuring spicy notes of rye and pepper. It begins with a burst of spice and delicately warms to a smooth richness with sweet notes of syrup and fruit.
The spirit animal displayed on the bottle pays homage to this proprietary blend, a hybrid of three signature animals from which Fable & Folly came: a stag, a hummingbird and a fox. Like this bespoke creature, the liquid combines the best of these stocks into one delicious and distinctive breed of whiskey.
Fable & Folly is available in limited quantities nationwide with an MSRP of $149.99 for 750mL. For more information on Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Co., click here and follow @orphanbarrel on Instagram.
