About Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye Whiskey 13 Year
For the rye whiskey lover, this is a special treat. Most rye whiskeys are aged for 4 years or less, but the award-winning Van Winkle's Family Reserve Rye Whiskey is aged for 13 years, making it one of the oldest rye whiskeys on the market. "This 13-year breaks the mold," says Paul Picult, America's foremost spirits authority, who describes it as "a truly unique and rewarding rye whiskey experience." The full-bodied beverage takes on much of the toasted oak and vanilla flavors that seep from the charred wood it's aged in. A backbone of caramel carries you through deep, dark spices and fruits with a tangy undertone, then gives way to a spicy, oaky finish.
