Orphan Barrel just came out with a new release. It is the brand’s newest and arguably most unique release, Entrapment. Just in time for the holidays, this new marque is the eleventh release from the Orphan Barrel Whiskey Distilling Company and the first Canadian whisky to be released in the portfolio. As you may know, Crown Royal is one of the most significant growth drivers of Canadian whiskey and leads the category.

Entrapment came to be in 1992, as part of a batch of Crown Royal Deluxe that was left in the barrel at Crown Royal’s distillery in Gimli, Manitoba for 25 years. Sometimes when using full blends of Crown Royal, there are small quantities of barrels that didn’t fit into the full blend – and Entrapment was born.

The mash bill for Entrapment is 97 percent corn and three percent malted barley. Beginning with a vanilla, toffee and a delicate toasted oak scent, Entrapment tastes light and creamy with hints of tobacco and walnut. The finish is warm with notes of dried fruits reminiscent of plums and raisins.

Entrapment’s design captures the promise of adventure and freedom that symbolize the brand’s outlaw orphan and is available in limited markets at a suggested retail price of $149.99.
