One of the youngest members of the Van Winkle family, this Bourbon is just a splash of water away from being barrel proof at 53.5% ABV. Aged for ten years, it delivers all the characteristics of Van Winkle lineage, bringing you that raw essence of a pure Kentucky Bourbon. An edgy mouthful that delivers all that well-known Pappy jazz.

Member Reviews and Ratings of Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Old 107 Proof
I know people are wild about RIP Van Winkle and I agree it is good but I've had other bourbons that are better. Strong notes of caramel, vanilla, and toast. Tends to be a little harsh at first but then smooths out, similar to Bookers.
Amazingly smooth and delicious. I wish I could afford / access this incredible bourbon!
So smooth. So even. So damn good. I wish I could afford this!!
Very mellow. Cherry and sweet burnt wheat linger. Tiny bits of smoke and vanilla provoke your palate. Excellent offering and luscious considering the 107 proof bottling. A favorite!
Tons of dried fruit on the nose, think apricots and raisins, then cinnamon cake and chocolate cookies. Alcohol is well hidden.
Huge dessert flavors: chocolate orange, cinnamon and cardamom, brown sugar, bread rolls, but enough heat and wood spice to cut through so it isn't cloying.
This one kicks you in the pants on the way out the door, the alcohol and spice clings.
Even if this isn't true Pappy, just an inheritor of the surname, this is really good stuff, the sort of whisky to enjoy with a slice of pecan pie as dessert.
Sweet spice, burnt caramel at the front. Full oak and smooth burn at the end. Excellent but hard to swallow at the price.
Delicious to the last drop, Carmel notes even at the
Very good, but there's a lot that are just as good or better for less
Love the flavor want more
Far more complex and satisfying than the flavor spiral says. Starts with spicy baked pear and yellow apple. Midpalate picks up weight; custard, baked apple, cinnamon & sweet hay. Lingering baking spice finish that turns a bit dry. None of the caramel or coconut nonsense that is over the top in so many American Bourbons. Delicious, and worth it up to about $450 on the secondary market.
The smoothest drink I’ve ever had that was over a 100 proof
A solid bourbon that balanced sweetness with spice, but it's certainly not worth the grey market prices. I tested it against the Weller Special Reserve and preferred the Weller's.
Smooth flavorful full bodied bourbon
This was a turning point in Bourbon (and whisky in general) for me. Changed me from having a casual appreciation to a full fledged, die-hard whisky affectionado.
Great bourbon but a little hot..
Man, it’s good. From the nose to the finish, you’ve got caramel and vanilla. A smooth, sweet pallet that rolls into oak and a perfect spice. The finish is sweet and lingering. To me, this is a more complex, rounded version of the Weller Antique 107.
Tasted on holland America Norway trip
Just tried this one at a Wyndham hotel in Buffalo, NY and I absolutely loved it! It has incredible balance and warmth. The hype is absolutely justified, but the pricing doesn't make this one attractive. Definitely just treat yourself to a tasting at a bar. Don't buy the bottle. My tasting was $25 for those curious.
A little too sweet for my liking. The 12 year pappy had a lot more flavor and hit me with a bit of smoke.
The higher proof gives a little heat than the 12 year, but still incredibly smooth.
Incredible bourbon. The sweetness at the end is delightful.
Best thing I tasted to date. Worth the money.
Very good maybe even great....not worth the insane prices it’s pulling. If you can get it at retail it’s a steal though
PERFECT, LOVE THIS RECIPE AT 107 PROOF, NOT AS BIG OF A FAN OF THE 90 PROOF STUFF EVEN WELLER 12 DOESN'T DO IT FOR ME AT THE PRICE.
Very smooth, nice spice with a great cherry bomb finish.
Great Bourbon. Sweet with great long Caramel finish. A little burn at 107 but still very smooth. Classic great bourbon. I haven't been fortunate enough to try the older Pappy Van Winkle line but I was surprised how good this is at 10 years.
This is arguably one of the best tasting bourbons I’ve ever had. Some bite to it but different type of taste with candy flavors
This is definitely my favorite bourbon of all. Heaven in a bottle is what I call it.
This is arguably one of the best tasting bourbons I’ve ever had.
Warm and smooth
I tasted this in a bar in DC. I had no idea how hard to get it was at the time. I was heartbroken to find out. This is by far my favorite bourbon. I'm hoping my memory isn't embellishing the flavor, but I recall smooth, sweet caramel, cinnamon spice and a delicious lasting warmth.
Smooth and warm! Easy sippin bourbon!
Delicious. Smooth and full of favor with balanced sweetness. Lives up to the hype at wholesale price.
Cheapest entry into the Pappy lexicon, but I personally enjoy more than the 12. A little on the sweet side for bourbon, but with a nice finish. If you can find for around $300, snatch it up
Some bite to it but different type of taste with candy flavors
Never turn down a chance to try it.. Buying it might be a bit too extreme. Great Juice.. but at well over $500 a bottle.. I dunno..
Believe the hype.
Spicy. Tastes like rye even though there is no rye in the mash. Not bad, but not what I would expect from a 10 year old bourbon. Cinnamon and citrus up front. Peppery long finish.
Peppery, but not too hot for a boozy booze. Can't claim that it's a value at 300-500 bucks a bottle, but it is good if you can get some on the cheap.
Don’t know haven’t opened but for the price it better be out of this world
I've been lucky enough to taste most of the VanWinkle lineup and to me this is the strongest of the bunch.
