Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year Old Bourbon

Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year Old Family Reserve Bourbon is, despite being one of the younger expressions from Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery, still exceptionally old for a bourbon. Due to recent shortages (Sazerac, the brand's parent company, blamed them on high losses to evaporation, or the "angel's share"), Pappy Van Winkle has become something of a cult obsession in the world of craft bourbon. The secondary market has seen the 15 Year Old priced in the thousands, despite the brand's insistence that they won't raise retail prices to reflect the shortage. As such, this is a massively sought-after whiskey, and by all professional accounts it really is that good.
