20 Year Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Bourbon
At the World Spirits Championship, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey earned a 99 out of 100 points, the highest rating ever given to a bourbon. Pappy Van Winkle's 20 Year retains its sweetness and complexity. Described by Preston Van Winkle as "Cognac-like," the flavor is intense and best enjoyed as a digestif. A silky smooth texture glides from dried, spiced fruits to creamy, honeyed oak. The finish is long and elegant. Drink this Bourbon neat and savor each sip––it's exceptionally rare due to its limited production and high demand. Serial number and code: B1507512:44M (Buffalo Trace Bottled 2015 on the 75th day of the year at 12:44p.m. on the M bottling line.)
