Description

Old Rip Van Winkle 23 Year Old Decanter 114 Proof 1989


Distilled in the Spring and Fall of 1989 and moved to stainless steel tanks in 2014, bottle no. 37 of 710, bottle code: illegible, ullage: mid shoulder, includes Glencairn crystal stopper and certificate of authenticity signed by Julian Van Winkle III, small barcode adhered to the side


At 25 years, this is the oldest Van Winkle whiskey ever released – the “Pappy of Pappys,” it’s called, not only because of its unmistakable flavor profile but because it is by far the best, rarest, most coveted bottle the Julian Van Winkle III has ever produced. It appeared in 2014, and only 710 were made. The wheated bourbon inside comes from Stitzel-Weller and is some of the last the distillery made before closing down in 1992. The bottle comes in a wooden box with an accompanying crystal stopper, made by Glencairn. This is pure, unadulterated bourbon luxury, in a bottle, and well worth ever penny one pays for it.
