Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is bottled at nearly barrel proof. Just a splash of Kentucky limestone water is added after a decade of aging. Rich, yet smooth, this bourbon takes a back seat to none.
Rich copper color. Aromas of fruity, buttery caramel fudge, roasted pecans, and fine brown spices with a plush, chewy, fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a long, lingering cherry tobacco, toffee, raisin toast, charcoal, and peppery spice finish. A sensationally flavorful and deep bourbon for sipping or cocktails. RATING: 95 points (Exceptional) -Beverage Testing Institute
