Pappy Van Winkle 13YO Rye 2015
From Pappy Van Winkle’s Private Stock comes this super-rare 2015 release Family Reserve, Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey that was aged for 13 years. This expression breaks the mould as it is one of the oldest rye whiskeys available today as most ryes are generally 4 years old or younger.
It is said that this vatting is kept in stainless steel tanks once reaching 13 years of age to keep it from aging further and taking on more oak. Each biannual release is drawn from these diminishing reserves, which means when it’s gone — it’s really gone. Ranked one of the best rye whiskey’s in the world, don’t miss out on adding this gem to your collection or drinking stock.
