"The Pappy van Winkle 20 year is the #1 Rated Bourbon Whiskey in the World Rated 99 out of 100 by the World's Spirits Championships. Our 'Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve' is aged an unheard of 20 years, and bottled at 45.2 apy (90.4 proof). This whiskey is wonderfully smooth and rich. No other bourbon today can stand 20 years of aging, but this bourbon does it with style. My grandfather, 'Pappy Van Winkle' was a true character. This bourbon, like 'Pappy', is full of the character that makes it a very special whiskey. It, too, has been put in a class of a fine after dinner cognac."

Rated: 99 - Beverage Testing Institute
Beautiful copper color with an olive cast. Lavish aromas of caramelized pecans, chocolate fudge, and rich baking spices. A bold, powerful entry leads to a dryish full body of intense dried fruits, buttery praline, vibrant baking spices. Finishes with a seemingly endless and evolving cascade that introduces notes of cigar box, sweet tobacco, leather, dried tangerine, and so on... In short, a monumental bourbon.
