Detailed Description

Orphan Barrel Entrapment 25 year old Canadian Whisky, Distilled in 1992, Entrapment was originally due to be included in a batch of Crown Royal Deluxe, however the spirit never made it into the blend and has instead spent the last 25 years maturing at the the distillery in Gimli, Manitoba.

Orphan Barrel is a Diageo-owned label that releases bottlings of “forgotten” whiskeys. Entrapment, a Canadian whisky, is the first non-American release from this brand. This whisky was originally destined to become Crown Royal, but somehow didn’t end up in the blend, and instead sat in the barrel for a full 25 years before being hauled down to Tullahoma, Tennessee for bottling.

The whiskey is described as “97% corn and 3% [malt]” and is the eleventh release in this particular Diageo line up. My sample came in a cute wooden book safe, complete with what seems to be a working compass.

Orphan Barrel Entrapment 25 Year Old Canadian Whiskey Tasting Notes

Vital stats: Canadian whisky, 97% corn/3% malt, aged 25 years, 41% ABV

Color: Pale copper

Nose: Butterscotch, faint spice, maple donut, confectioner’s sugar. Like other Canadian whiskies, this one mostly smells overwhelmingly sweet to me.

Palate: More butterscotch, syrup, and brown sugar, with a heavy dose of oak. There’s a flash of cherry cough syrup on the back of the palate, and the finish sits somewhere between bitter and medicinal. Texturally, it’s both light and faintly drying.
