Van winkle special reserve 12yr 90.4 proof Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof. This sweet, full-bodied whiskey has been described by some as nectar.  The 12 years of aging and medium proof 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. The overall impression is rich and deep.   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.

Pappy began working at W.L. Weller & Sons first as a traveling whiskey salesman and eventually as the President of Stitzel-Weller Distillery. He helped shape the industry during and after Prohibition. Through his endeavors in the warehouse, the boardroom and on the road, he built a reputation in the bourbon industry that was second to none. Fine bourbon was his mission, and he accepted nothing less. Pappy's son, Julian Jr., operated the distillery from 1964 until the family sold it in 1972. After, not one to be defeated, he got himself an office and a secretary and formed a company called J.P. Van Winkle and Son.

He got into marketing bourbon through many types of commemorative decanters, some of the more popular being for universities. But he never stopped bottling on the side. He created the Old Rip Van Winkle label as a side venture in case his son, Julian III, wanted to come into the business. Julian III took over the business in 1981 after his father passed away. He was 32 years old with a wife and four young children. The premium bourbon business was in a lull, but 90 years ago, Pappy started from the ground up, too. So, with this same, innate passion, Julian purchased the Old Hoffman Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, for barrel storage and bottling purposes. He couldn't afford much advertising, but the quality of Old Rip Van Winkle sold itself.

Husband Loves 12 Year Pappy

I ordered this for my 25th anniversary with my husband and he loves it! Thank you Whiskey Caviar for making it so easy to complete this purchase and received the bottle 3 days later in Georgia.

Pappy 12 Year

I have ordered from Whiskey Caviar a few times, and I am so compelled to write a good review for them because of their amazing services. Most liquor websites take forever processing my order, but Whiskey Caviar has sent my bottles out wrapped perfectly and in a timely manner. Was worried about spending so much on something being delivered, but the bottle arrived wrapped enough times in bubble wrap to drop from a building lol ... Will definitely be ordering from here again.
