Bid now to add this rare Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Bourbon to your collection!
Expressly produced according to the exclusive Van Winkle family wheated recipe and specially selected from barrels in the heart of the aging warehouses, this bourbon remained undisturbed for 10 years to age in deep charred heavy oak untouched by human hands, unhurried by time.
There's no name in American whiskey like the Pappy Van Winkle name. Pappy Van Winkle's 10 Year is an excellent example of why the hype for this cherished bourbon exists. It's released only twice a year in super small allocations.
Old Rip Van Winkle's 10 Year Bourbon is the youngest of Pappy Van Winkle's award-winning lineup. A splash of limestone well-water is added before bottling for two reasons: to make an exceptionally smooth whiskey and to keep it as close to barrel proof as possible. The 10-year aging period in 100% new oak imparts strong vanilla and toasted wood flavors to each sip. If you can get your hands on a bottle, be prepared for a buttery mouthfeel, balanced, rich flavors ranging from caramel to roasted nuts, and a long, spicy finish.
It pours a hazy copper in the glass, and has a big palate to match the big alcohol. Aromas of dried cherry, honey, cinnamon and cooked sugar drift off the glass. A full body of caramel, toffee, and peppery spice lands on your tongue with each sip, and a long and satisfying finish stays with you long after you swallow.
This rare Authentic 10 Year Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrel Head is signed by Julian Van Winkle III. Some of the finest whiskey ever crafted was asleep many years in this wood. Now that the whiskey is bottled, the barrel is disassembled and ready for its next resting place, your home. (21 inches diameter.)
