Orphan Barrel's Entrapment is a 25-year-old Canadian whisky that was distilled by Crown Royal in 1992 and matured in Gimli. The whisky was produced from a mash bill consisting of 97% corn and 3% malted barley.
The whisky is a rich amber color with a deep yellow-brown hue. On the nose there is a pronounced, sweet creamy, crème brûlée note accompanied by aromas of butterscotch with hints of vanilla, followed by hints of dried stone fruit and a bit of walnut. There is also a persistent waxy note, slightly reminiscent of furniture wax that is typical of grain whiskies.
On the palate there is sweetness, a more pronounced dried stone fruit note of peach, with vanilla, butterscotch and hints of cinnamon and wood spice. There is some weight on the palate, with a rich creamy texture. There is a slight pepperiness that builds and then fades quickly. The finish is very smooth, sweet, of medium length with distinctive stone fruit notes and some bitterness on the end.
