Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Years Old
Brand Pappy Van Winkle
This wonderful bourbon is bottled as close to barrel proof as possible. We add just a splash of our Kentucky limestone well-water when we empty the barrels for bottling. Thus, this whiskey is as smooth as any you will find. TASTING NOTES See a rich, copper color. Smell enticingly sweet, spicy, caramel-nut-fudge aromas. Enjoy a fruity, medium-to full-bodied palate with intense dried fruit and toasted nuts notes. Each sip finishes with a very long, bold wave of peppery brown spices, floral honey and charred barrel flavors that balance the weight of the alcohol. It’s a big, bold, aged bourbon that has great balance for its high proof and flavor.
Bucket list Bourbon, truly amazing, glad I pulled the trigger!
They came through on a hard to find selection
Being a Kentucky boy, the smell of sour mash was a known delight. 10 yr is brilliantly bourbon at it’s best. Use a brandy snifter to max the tasting. MD
Sipwhiskey, like other secondary retailers, is taking full advantage of the bourbon and Pappy craze. This bottle is not worth $600. I bought it to celebrate my upcoming retirement, but it will be my only purchase. At least at this crazy price!
One of the best high proof Bourbons!!!
ORVW 10 is amazing!!! You can really taste the dried fruits and toasted nuts. This bourbon, for being high proof, is smooth and delicious!!! I really think every experienced bourbon connoisseur should at least give this one a try.
