Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 yr Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #991511 96-100 points Wine Enthusiast

 Initial sniffings find aromas of sweet corn dripping with butter, dark toffee and hazelnuts; later inhalations pick up notes of chocolate cake frosting, cocoa beans and vanilla. Palate entry is spicy, prickly and raisiny; at midpalate the taste features lead pencil, slate, black pepper, sautéed butter and deep-seared oak. Finishes ash-like, chewy and oily. American whiskey doesn’t come any finer.  (6/2005)

K&L Notes

Limited to quanity on hand only. We can't honor bottles sold into the negative. According to the distillery: "My grandfather, Julian P. "Pappy" Van Winkle, Sr., started working as a salesman for W.L. Weller & Sons wholesale in Louisville, KY in 1893 at the age of eighteen, just after he graduated from Centre College in Danville, KY. This bourbon represents a younger expression of our famous 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve. The whiskey in this bottle was produced according to our exclusive family wheated recipe and was specially selected from barrels in the heart of our warehouses here in Kentucky. It has remained undisturbed for 15 years to age in deep-charred heavy oak…untouched by human hands…unhurried by time. I am proud to set my family name upon it." (Julian Van Winkle III) Rated 98 - Superlative! - Beverage Tasting Institute

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
