    A treasure. Initially did not want to open the bottle; just wanted to gaze and dream about. Realty hit, opened the bottle... Never drank anything that was as smooth and full of decipherable complication as Pappy 15

    This is the finest whiskey that I ever tasted. When I bought my bar in 1996 I was a Jack Daniels drinker. One of my bartenders introduced me to Maker's Mark and I immediately ordered a case for the Top Shelf. Later that year I took a trip to Tennessee and Kentucky on a Bourbon buying/vacation trip and stumbled onto Pappy Van Winkles while traveling through Harlan County. It changed my philosophy about bourbon and showed me what a truly authentic, pure and rich distilled spirit that it was. Ambrosia was the first word from my unworthy mouth at the first sip. The addition of an excellent cigar, and an Adirondack Chair made the experience bliss. Albeit expensive as hell I found it to be the perfect nectar to serve to my heeled customers who could toss around hundred dollar bills for a shot of the finest whiskey made.


The price depends on where you live and where you get your bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 15-Year Family Reserve, but you can expect to spend a pretty penny on this bottle of alcohol. Pappy Van Winkle starts at $1,700, but that price ranges greatly, up to around $3,000, depending on your local alcohol taxes and the bottle’s availability (if it is in high demand, it may cost a little more). 
This beverage can be a tough one to find, but the easiest way to order it is directly from Drizly. It’s available on the Drizly website and app, where you can ship the beverage for delivery to your home—and in some places, your order will get to you in just about a day… how is that for efficiency? You can also find Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year Family Reserve at select liquor stores throughout the country, but remember that it can be a tough bottle to find, which makes Drizly’s delivery even more convenient (but also keep in mind that this bottle can’t be delivered to every area due to its high demand).
It’s easy to admit that Pappy Van Winkle is, indeed, expensive alcohol, and there are a number of reasons behind this. First, it’s aged for 15 years, and during that time, it’s completely undisturbed by humans, giving it more than a decade to age to perfection (for reference, most bourbons are aged for two to four years). Pappy Van Winkle also contains a higher amount of alcohol than other bourbons—most bourbons have a proof between 80 or 100, or 40 to 50 percent alcohol—Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year Family Reserve is 107 proof or 53.5% alcohol. All in all, its long-aging process and a high percentage of alcohol mean it’s one of the most high-quality bourbons out there...and also one of the most expensive.
Any true fan of bourbon will be delighted to receive a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 15-Year Family Reserve—who wouldn’t want to be gifted one of the best bourbons on the market? It’s also the kind of item that someone likely won’t buy for themself, which makes it an ideal gift for your friend or family member to open up on a holiday, for an anniversary, or for a birthday. Beyond all of that, Pappy Van Winkle 15-Year Family Reserve is an award-winning bourbon that anyone would be proud to show off in their drink cabinet or to offer to other fans of bourbon.
