Van Winkle. Need we say more? They singlehandedly started the Bourbon craze, one that isn't limited to the U.S. any more. The Van Winkle name is everywhere, and everyone wants to have a piece of the famous Pappy.

Now, don't let the ABV fool you. Yes, it's 45.2%, but this 12-year-old Van Winkle is an exemplary representation of the Van Winkle name. A fusion of pure craft, elegance and balance. It may be young, but don't forget—age ain't nothing but a number.

Was worth the secondary price. Taste is unique and smooth.

Smooooooth

Michelle,
I’ve tried this and loved it bursting with flavors
 
Laura
Laura,
This is my all time favorite. I have now finally tried the Pappy 20 but honestly prefer this one to that.
 
Mike
Mike,
Its 20 year old sibling still remains, at least in this reviewers opinion, “king of the Pappys”. That said, I actually prefer this to the 24 which I find to be a bit too mature “bordering on over aged even” for my taste. If you can’t get the 20 or the 15 this certainly is more than adequate. Very easy drinking....almost to the point of dangerously easy. Incredibly smooth and undeniably Pappy.
 
Christina
Christina,
I think the allure is in the name. It was an okay bourbon. I didn't find the taste to be special or notable. There are far better buys for the price.

My least favorite Pappy (outside of the Rye). Doesn't quite leave the lasting impression on the tongue as the others. It is held to a high standard: this is still an excellent bourbon
