Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year Old 2017 Description
This Kentucky straight bourbon is distilled at Buffalo Trace to a recipe created by the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. Matured for 12 years and bottled at a smooth sipping 45.2% 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.
Nose: sweet and rich with complex toffee notes.
Palate: well rounded with caramel, nuts, brown spices and a drying aspect.
Finish: long and enveloping.
