Orphan Barrel has announced the latest release in their line of found barrels – Entrapment Canadian Whisky.
Entrapment was distilled and aged at the Crown Royal distillery in Gimli, Canada and bottled by Diageo in Tullahoma, TN. When blending batches of Crown Royal in Canada, barrels that don’t fit into the final blend are moved around in the warehouse to make room for newly filled barrels. When they aren’t chosen for another blend, they become “hidden treasures” tucked away in dark corners. The mashbill for these particular barrels consists of 97% corn and 3% malted barley and are bottled at 82 proof.
Entrapment follows 10 other well-aged Orphan Barrel releases, including Rhetoric, Forged Oak, Gifted Horse, Lost Prophet, and Barterhouse. The release is available now in limited markets at a suggested retail price of $149 for a 750ml bottle.
