The Van Winkle line of Bourbons comes to us from the Buffalo Trace Distillery. It is one of their core, premium Bourbon ranges and enjoys a great reputation around the world.

There are six Van Winkle Bourbons: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 year, Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye (13 year), Pappy Van Winkle 15 year, Pappy Van Winkle 20 year, and Pappy Van Winkle 23 year old.

The range is broad and each fan has their favorite and all have won awards at major industry events. All are over-proof — meaning that they are bottled at higher than average ABV. Their 10YO has pecans, caramel, and oak on the nose, and a smooth palate with fresh grain and dark cherries.
