Pappy Van Winkle 20 Year Old Family Reserve Bourbon, Old Rip Van Winkle N.V.
Medium dark amber in color with a big, smoky, spicy, woody nose displaying notes of caramelized citrus, honey and maple syrup, this bourbon hits the palate with wonderful sweetness, expansiveness and richness, and not a bit of burn or harshness as well as a long, persistent finish. It is stunning on its own merit until you taste its more renowned and more expensive, virtually impossible to find, bigger brother, the Pappy Van Winkle 23-Year Old Family Reserve.
