Thus, Pappy Van Winkle a history of the “Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery” begins – surprisingly – with the revelation that no distillery with this name ever existed. The story of Van Winkle bourbons is actually two stories. The first is of people in the Van Winkle family line. The second is of a distillery called Stitzel-Weller. Research from multiple sources has produced the intertwined narrative below, edited for clarity:

The diminutive Julian P. “Pappy” Van Winkle Sr. (all five-foot-six-inches of him, or roughly 1.35 Adams) had been a traveling salesman for whiskey wholesaler W.L. Weller since the age of 19. He and a partner purchased the A. Ph. Stitzel distillery, the source of Weller’s bourbon. A merger of the two businesses resulted in the construction of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery in 1935. Pappy passed away in 1965, with a lifetime of bourbon drinking and cigar smoking not impeding his progress to the ripe old age of 91.

On the nose: A topnote of acentone dominates the nose. This smells young but high-quality. Tons of fruit: orange peel, kumquat, watermelon juice. Orange creamsicle. Goetze’s Candy Caramel Creams.

In the mouth: Starts with a bright, slightly bitter burst of tangerine. Barrel char and a metallic note are evident at midpalate. There’s around ripeness that re-emerges, along with caramelized sugar. This is densely flavorful. Finishes bright and clean, with a wisp of tannic oakiness. Very good bourbon

REVIEWS

“A whiskey connoisseur’s bonanza…remarkable find…ranks with the best whiskies.”

-Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal

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

 

VAN WINKLE SPECIAL RESERVE 12 YEAR

KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY

“A perfect combination of age and proof. The 12 years of aging and medium proof of 90.4 seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant drink of whiskey. This fine bourbon can compete with any excellent cognac as an after-dinner drink.” -Paul Pacult

tasting notes

See a brilliant, amber-orange color. Smell luscious, complex toffee. Taste a round, supple entry, leading to a dry, expansive, medium body. Enjoy notes of caramel, nuts, and brown spices with a lengthy, enveloping finish. It’s an outrageously smooth and decadent bourbon.

 

VAN WINKLE FAMILY RESERVE RYE 13 YEARS

KENTUCKY STRAIGHT RYE WHISKEY

“This 13-year breaks the mold, as it is one of the oldest rye whiskeys available today. The maturity it has achieved while aging is quite obvious when you take the first sip. It’s a truly unique and rewarding rye whiskey experience.” -Paul Pacult

 

tasting notes

See the deep, tawny, copper color. Smell the powerful caramel, spice, sweet-tobacco aromas. Enjoy a smooth, broad entry, leading to a medium-to full-bodied palate with sweet toffee, roasted nut and leather notes. Finish with a wave of white pepper, spice and long-lingering dried fruit flavors.

 

PAPPY VAN WINKLE 15 YEAR

KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY

Expressly produced according to the exclusive Van Winkle family wheated-recipe and specially selected from barrels in the heart of the aging warehouses, this bourbon remained undisturbed for 15 years to age in deep-charred heavy oak untouched by human hands, unhurried by time.

tasting notes

See a hazy, copper color. Taste a rich, supple entry, leading to a decadent, huge, full-bodied palate with intense caramel, toffee and peppery brown spice flavors. Then, enjoy a finish with an extreme, long, complex, evolving fade of spice and wood notes. Experts deem it a seductive, exotic and virtually flawless bourbon.

    May I simply just say what a comfort to discover someone who truly understands what they’re discussing on the net. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people must look at this and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you surely have the gift.
