This very rare. limited edition bourbon takes generations of distilling know-how to produce. Only the most careful and expensive distilling method can be used to create a whiskey as special as this one. This is the same distillation as our famous 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve. These barrels were carefully selected from the heart of the warehouse. Nose. Oak. pepper and char; a bit of maple. Palate. Oily and thick with heavy doses of oak. spice and tobacco; Buttery bread lingers. Finish. Heaps of wood and char; caramelized sugars; prunes and dried plum
The White Elephant of Bourbon Whiskies, a 20 year old bottling of Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve. The whisky retains a beautiful sweetness, full of stewed fruits on the nose, sweet spices, oiliness and white chocolate. The palate is Rich and soft with the mouthfeel almost like silk. The finish is sublime with a good lengthy finish with hints of honeycomb, peppery spices and prunes.
** Please note this Pappy came without a Pouch.**
A well aged expression from Old Rip Van Winkle. This bottle of Pappy 15 has a higher wheat content in its mashbill and was matured in heavily charred barrels. A very well balanced whiskey with nuttiness, toffee and rum like complexity, buttery in the mouth and toffee popcorn coming through. Really good stuff.
The Stitzel-Weller distillery has gained legendary status among bourbon connoisseurs for a number of reasons. First, it’s the distillery opened by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle and run under his ownership for much of its history. The liquid inside this bottle is most likely produced under his strewardship.
This is a 1970’s bottling that has been matured for 8 years in charred new oak barrels, this is a elegant and rare sipping whiskey with a sophisticated, mellow fruity flavour with hints of vanilla and caramel. Old Fitzgerald 1849 is very popular with Dave Broom and Jim Murray!
***Please note that this is a 1970s bottling***
