Old Rip Van Winkle

Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Tasting Notes Review

Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year-Old

90-4proof “wheat Recipe” Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 99

 

Tasting Notes

 

Nose:- is intensely fruited but also bears a tantalizing citrus zest note.

 

Taste:- The body is huge and almost chewable, and the palate is tremendously buttery with some sherry notes, a dash of dried fruits and some rich, creamy vanilla.

 

Finish:- is long and elegant.

Pappy Van Winkle’s Special Reserve12 Year-Old

90-4proof “wheat Recipe” Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 98

 

Tasting Notes

Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof. This sweet, full-bodied whiskey has been described by some as “NECTAR.” We agree! The 12 years of aging and medium proof of 90.4 seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant drink of whiskey. This fine whiskey can compete with any excellent cognac as an after dinner drink. The overall impression is rich and deep.

Well crafted…elegant, stately…balanced beautifully…

Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year old

90-4proof “wheat Recipe” Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 91

 

Tasting Notes

This fine whiskey has as pleasant a taste as any whiskey around. The 10 full years of aging combine nicely with its 90-proof. A hint of caramel flavour is enjoyed when one tastes this fine handcrafted bourbon.

Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 13 year old

90 proof, Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 95

 

Tasting Notes

The maturity this whiskey has achieved while aging is quite obvious when you take the first sip. Flavours include cocoa, vanilla, spice, and white pepper. Rye whiskey lovers who try this bottling will never again look back at younger whiskeys.
