Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 years old 53.5% ABV Kentucky
Usually bourbon is distilled with corn, rye, and barley. This Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve is made from barley, malt, corn, and wheat; and only a few barrels are
released each year.
The colour was a dark rich and golden brown. On the nose there was butterscotch, tonka, and dried raisins. In the mouth a tase of caramel and muffins
was followed by earthy woods, brandy butter, dark rum, and lots of oak. In the mouth it is creamy, smooth and soft but of rich intensity, with a lovely finish of 50 seconds. An
excellent Kentucky Bourbon 4.25/5
