This 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. 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.
