The 15-year-old version of the famous Van Winkle wheated bourbon.
At 107 proof – 53.5% - it is the highest proof of the 15, 20 and 23-year-old expressions. Distilled by Buffalo Trace, it is matured in deep-charred barrels.
The Pappy Van Winkle bourbons name has become synonymous with excellence and exclusivity in the past decade, with Australian allocations notoriously small and hard to attain.
Buffalo Trace tasting notes:
“See a hazy, copper color. Taste a rich, supple entry, leading to a decadent, huge, full-bodied palate with intense caramel, toffee and peppery brown spice flavors. Then, enjoy a finish with an extreme, long, complex, evolving fade of spice and wood notes. Experts deem it a seductive, exotic and virtually flawless bourbon.”
