The 10-year-old Old Rip Van Winkle straight Kentucky bourbon.
Rich and smooth, this is bottled at near-barrel strength 107 proof or 53.5%.
Official tasting notes:
â€œA sweet vanilla nose with caramel, pecan and oak wood. Smooth, mellow flavour consisting of robust wheat, cherries and oak. Features a long, smoky wheat finish with hints of fruit, spice and oak tannins.â€
The Van Winkle bourbons name has become synonymous with excellence and exclusivity in the past decade, with Australian allocations notoriously small and hard to attain.
