Product Description

Featured in the 1001 whiskies you must try before you die book

"Old rip emphasizes candy flavours like vanilla, caramel and toffee with a little mint and spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Its richness and balance are uncanny. What distinguishes Van Winkle from other wheaters is a very slight touch of citrus that leans toward orange."

The holy grail of American whiskey, with the Stitzel Weller distillery last producing whiskey in 1992 and now made at the Buffalo Trace distillery.

Our tasting notes:

Nose: Dark caramel, cherry drop sweets, popping candy, toasted vanilla, rich and polished oak, cocoa powder, new leather,aromatic clove and cinnamon spice along with some fresh mint leaf and toffee popcorn.

Palate: Rich dark chocolate with nuances of orange fondant, black cherry, clove spice, salted caramel and butterscotch. A deep and mouthfilling body with the vanillin oak balancing out the sweeter and spicy elements.

Finish: More chocolate,dark orange and black cherry along with salted caramel, rich vanilla oak, toasted/aromatic baking spices and a new leather firmness/dryness.

A wheated Bourbon that has more of a Rye like hit for me, but whatever the mash bill, this is one very mouthfilling and complex Bourbon that makes you understand why Bourbon lovers search high and low for it.
