This week on What’s New at Charlie’s features a sixteen-year-old Orphan Barrel cask strength straight bourbon whiskey.

From the Cascade Hollow Distillery in Tullahoma, Tennessee comes the latest version of Orphan Barrel Whiskey known as Copper Tongue. Cascade Hollow is the home of George Dickel and has created some great whiskey in its long and storied history.

Orphan Barrel Whiskey Company

The Orphan Barrel Whiskey Company began as a concept to feature old, forgotten barrels of whiskeys that were hidden or lost in warehouses or distilleries. Previous bottle releases include Rhetoric, Forged Oak, and Barterhouse to name a few. After recently reviewing the very special George Dickel thirteen-year-old bottled in bond Tennessee whisky, we were anxious to see what this sixteen-year-old orphan brought to the table.

Copper Tongue

Copper Tongue is a cask strength bourbon that comes in at a satisfactory 89.8 proof and an oak forward flavor profile. How did we like it compared to the George Dickel Bottled-in-Bond? Watch this week’s review HERE. The bottle is handsome with a great label and will display nicely on any bar. Copper Tongue follows a line of Orphan Barrel releases including the above-mentioned bottles and from 2016, Whoop and Holler which was also produced by Cascade Hollow. Releasing a twenty-eight-year-old whiskey was dramatic, and the reviews were mixed. However, if you can find a bottle of Whoop and Holler today, it will set you back about eleven hundred dollars.
