About the brand
Perhaps the most distinctive name in bourbon, Old Rip Van Winkle and its supremely popular 'Pappy' releases have become a culture-defining phenomenon. Passed down through generations of the Van Winkle family for well over 100 years, Old Rip Van Winkle (now distilled by Buffalo Trace) is renowned for its unique preference of wheat rather than rye in the mashbill, a process which has helped it earn cult status and a reputation for producing the smoothest and most complex bourbons in circulation. Released yearly in extremely limited quantities, Old Rip Van Winkle and its acclaimed Pappy Van Winkle line are celebrated by collectors and connoisseurs the world over, and rightly so, no top shelf is complete without one.

3/24/18 Nose: Cedar and pine orange and preparing zest Sense of taste: Exceptionally mind boggling. Oaky tannins ricochet around against flies of liquor warmth and orange pizzazz. Influxes of cedar from the nose thereafter. amazingly long completion.

Tasting Notes
Nose
Caramel, Vanilla, Soft Oak
Taste
Predominant oak stands out but not overpowering as you would expect in a 25-year old bourbon. Wheated bourbons typically age well, and this ORVW follows suit. The sweet sugars hold up and provide an excellent balance and flavor complexity to the oak forward. The proof point is just right with this expression. It’s a straight down the middle, aged wheated bourbon that is very nice. I expected to get smacked in the face with the oak similar to Diageo’s Orphan Barrel Whoop & Holler, but this ORVW is in a different league entirely.
Finish
The finish on this whiskey is mid-range with very little thickness and bite – again, surprising for a bourbon aged a quarter century.
