About Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year Bourbon
At the World Spirits Championship, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year Bourbon earned a 99 out of 100 points, the highest rating ever given to a bourbon. 20 years of aging can make a bourbon overly woody and unbalanced, but Pappy Van Winkle's 20 Year retains its sweetness and complexity. Described by Preston Van WInkle as "Cognac-like," the flavor is intense and best enjoyed as a digestif. A silky smooth mouthfeel glides from dried, spiced fruits to creamy, honeyed oak with a long finish. Drink Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year Bourbon neat and savor each sip––it's exceptionally rare.
