The best Bourbon on the planet.

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve is one of, if not the most exclusive Whiskey range in the world and definitely the hottest Bourbon on the market. The demand for Pappy is so extreme that finding one is a feat in its own right, since there’s just not enough to go around. This is the flagship brand of Bourbon owned by the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery company and is now distilled and bottled by the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky.

The distillery has a four generation history that started in the late 1800s with Julian P. "Pappy" Van Winkle. The Van Winkle Bourbons are created using Pappy's traditional recipe of corn, wheat and barley, rather than the more typical corn, rye and barley. This wheat gives the Bourbon a much softer, smoother taste and allows the whiskey to age more gracefully and for longer periods of time.

The protracted aging process is what separates Pappies from the rest of the lot and allows this Bourbon to reveal its full, lavish character. You pay the price, sure, but this kind of exclusivity and quality defies the conventional market rules. If you're into Bourbon, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve Bourbon 20 Year Old is bottled at 45.2 % ABV and is the no. 1 rated Bourbon in the world, which says it all really. It earned a 99 out of 100 from World’s Spirits Championship, and a 99 Rating from the Beverage Tasting Institute. As close to perfection as you can get.

Caramel Vanilla and toast spice
Perfection, followed by sadness knowing you will never get it again.
By far the best in the pappy family
"They should have sent a poet"
Even more excellent than the last.
Beyond amazing.
This is my favorite of all the Van Winkle's aside from the Rye which is delicious. A velvety smooth bourbon with notes of fruit and chocolate.
