A well aged whiskey from Old Rip Van Winkle, this bottling of Family Reserve has been aged for 15 years in heavily charred barrels, there is a high wheat content in the mashbill.
Nose: Wood, but so very balanced with nuttiness, toffee and a rum-like complexity, that is just perfect. Wood shavings, hints of dried berry fruits, and a faint shade of pepper provide a mouth-watering aroma…
Palate: Buttery and very rum-like in the mouth. Candy floss sweetness, caramel richness, and the softest, juiciest oak imaginable.
Finish: Hints of exotic spices combine with Demerara. Long and rich.
