Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Old is a very rare and limited edition bourbon that takes generations of distilling know-how to produce. Only the most careful and expensive distilling method can be used to create a whiskey as special as this one. Each barrel ages for 23 years and is carefully selected from the heart of the warehouse. This whiskey should be enjoyed neat. The initial aromas are of caramel and cream with soft notes of oak, nuts and leather. The sweet taste is composed of vanilla, maple and honey joined later by complimentary flavours of citrus and spice. It has a long lasting oaky finish, along with many of the early flavours coming through.
