Pappy Van Winkle 15YO 2015
Award-winning and full-bodied Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 15-year-old bourbon/whiskey is a mighty expression. Although not the oldest member of Pappy Van Winkle’s family, this 15-year-old has the highest proof at 53.5%alc.
These bottles are drawn from hand-selected, deeply charred, heavy oak barrels and are aged undisturbed and untouched by human hands for 15 years. The time allows the flavours from the oak to mellow while the flavours from the base elements intensify. If you have an opportunity to taste this rare release, expect complex and rich notes of dark fruits, deep spice, vanilla and caramel.Only small quantities are made available each year with a handful of bottles making it to Australian shores so be sure to add one to your collection or drinking stock today.
Jim Murray rated it at 93.5 points in his 2009 Whisky Bible calling it “Delightful on numerous levels and Pappy as it should be”
