Pappy Van Winkle's 15 Year Old Family Reserve Bourbon 750ml
One of the most interesting bottles in the Pappy van Winkle lineup, the 15 Year Old Family Reserve Bourbon is a mystifying and complex bottle to unravel. A remarkable balance of unique flavors results in one of the most exceptional wheated bourbons ever produced, with many drawing close comparisons to the Pappy 23 with its oaky undertones and wheated aura. As is tradition with Pappy bourbon, cherry is noticeable on the nose, with berry, honey and woody oakiness also apparent. The profile is a robust and refined collision of sweet and spicy, with lavish leather tones giving way to smooth vanilla, before cinnamon and cherry begin to butt heads. The finish is wheaty, with lashings of oak, caramel and clove. A truly remarkable piece of whiskey craftsmanship and a must-have for any serious collection.

About the brand
Perhaps the most distinctive name in bourbon, Old Rip Van Winkle and its supremely popular 'Pappy' releases have become a culture-defining phenomenon. Passed down through generations of the Van Winkle family for well over 100 years, Old Rip Van Winkle (now distilled by Buffalo Trace) is renowned for its unique preference of wheat rather than rye in the mashbill, a process which has helped it earn cult status and a reputation for producing the smoothest and most complex bourbons in circulation. Released yearly in extremely limited quantities, Old Rip Van Winkle and its acclaimed Pappy Van Winkle line are celebrated by collectors and connoisseurs the world over, and rightly so, no top shelf is complete without one.

3/6 of a Van Winkle flight. This one rides the line between the 10/12 and 20/23. Still a lot of character yet getting much gentler.

Staggering. Outstanding amongst other I've had. Concur this is the best of the Pappys. Can't trust it just got a 89 rating.

Exceptional smell of spread and rum no consume from the high ABV on the button or sense of taste. While worth 5 stars on taste and introduction could never spend the going rate on a container of it.

Natural new wheater nose. Serious with a touch of cowhide also. Following a couple of moments loads of caramel and butterscotch even a trace of cocoa. So smooth on the tongue. Coats your mouth rich. Sweet however not excessively so. Pleasant cinnamon zest. Slight salt and sharpness. A waiting calfskin charry preparing zest note. Amazing. 8/23/17

Tasting Notes
Nose
Wood, but so very balanced with nuttiness, toffee and a rum-like complexity, that it’s just perfect. Wood shavings, hints of dried berry fruits, and a faint shade of pepper provide a mouth-watering aroma.
Taste
Buttery and very rum-like in the mouth. Candy floss sweetness, caramel richness, and the softest, juiciest oak imaginable.
Finish
Hints of exotic spices combine with Demerara. Long and rich.
