Top reviews for Van Winkle 12 Year Old Special Reserve:

— This very first bottle of bourbon that has made me fall in love of American bourbon whisky, one of few bottles that gave me a tinkling feeling and craving for more that same night after going home. Again, one of few bottles must try before you die.

— Smooth. Strong sweet notes. Long finish

— Fantastic.

Gary,
Not worth the money, absolutely great whiskey but doesn’t set itself apart from a $150 whiskey by any means, simply supply demand driven price.

Enjoyed the smooth flavor. There are some alternatives that would not cost as much, but enjoyed it greatly.

Josh,
For the price this is more of a collector. I have an unopened bottle for a keepsake. Drink similarly to a scotch per my pallet, a little on the warm side.
