I've always been a big fan of the Orphan Barrel whiskeys. The beautiful and intricate labels on the bottles practically jump off the shelf at you, begging one to pick up a bottle, pour a dram, and learn more about its story which is masterfully woven within the packaging and intertwined within the libation itself.
