Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 15 Year Old 2017 Description
This Kentucky straight bourbon is distilled at Buffalo Trace to an exclusive wheated recipe created by the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. Matured for 15 years and bottled at barrel proof strength (53.5% abv), this expression is only released once per year – as with all the Pappy Van Winkle bourbons – making it a very highly sought-after bottle. This release dates from 2017.
This bottle was part of a private collection before making its way to Loch Fyne Whiskies.
Nose: sweet, rich and peppery.
Palate: intense caramel and toffee with brown spices.
Finish: long and complex with wood spices lingering.
