Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Bourbon
Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is bottled generations of family tradition, at nearly barrel proof. Just a splash of Kentucky limestone water is added after ten years in the barrel to create a rich, yet smooth bourbon that takes a back seat to none.
The 10 Year Old bourbon is the original Pappy Van Winkle and has been in production since the early 1900’s. OLD RIP is a wheated bourbon that can only be produced once a year due to the availability of the notoriously difficult-to-find Pappy barrels. The result is one of the most highly sought after bourbons on the market today.
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.
