Top reviews for Orphan Barrel Rhetoric Bourbon 22 Year Old:

— All of the Orphan Barrels are just awesome!

— The 24yr is my favorite bourbon! I'm a sucker for the sweetness you get from the high corn content. Lots of almond extract and cherry on palate, a nice long finish for something of its age. Despite the high price I think its worth it.

— Best bourbon I’ve ever had. The 23 year is my favorite but can’t go wrong with any of the releases. I’d let the 24 breathe a little but can’t beat the smoothness, sweet pecan nose and beautiful vanillas on the backside

Jim,
This is a tough one. The flavors tend to change over time and especially bottle to bottle. A bit overpriced, but good.

Pretty good, but for the price, I actually like Forged Oak better.

The more I drink it the more I love it. Nice vanilla finish and a steal at the price.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Apples and booze on the nose (which was surprising given the ABV). Smooth, light mouth feel. Clove, allspice on the palate. Easy finish.

Oak! Very good sweet vanilla daily sipper (if secondary market value wasn't so high)
