Twenty years in American Oak will make your average spirit a bit mellow. Take all the fight out. Well this here is no ordinary spirit, and twenty years is long enough to pick up a trick or two. For one barrel in particular, it was long enough to develop the gift of a silver tongue. The old rickhouse hands had it written off as a rumor. A character so smooth, it could clean out the card sharps and take the shirt off a travelling salesman's back. But the rumors were true. And when the chips are in, a smooth operator can be mighty persuasive indeed. One sip of Barterhouse Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and you just might find yourself forgiving Robert Johnson for trading his soul to the very devil himself.

This is from a series of old and rare limited-edition whiskies released by Diageo from their Stitzel-Weller warehouses. It's silky and surprisingly gentle for a 20-year-old whiskey, with notes of creamy caramel, brown sugar and touches of tropical fruit and allspice. It finishes remarkably long, with gentle vanilla sweetness.

Surprisingly lacking in oak intensity, given its age. Very creamy and soothingly sweet, with notes of honeyed vanilla, creme brulee, sultana, orange creamsicle, peach cobbler, and a subtle array of tropical fruit. Soft and mellow on the finish. It's very easy-drinking and should be enjoyable under most moods and circumstances. JH
