Because isn't that the whole point?
There's no name in American whiskey like the Pappy Van Winkle name. Pappy Van Winkle's 15 Year Family Reserve is an excellent example of why the hype for this cherished bourbon exists.
The 15 Year Family Reserve is a barrel-proof whiskey that's left unhurried and unperturbed at the Old Rip Van Winkle warehouse. The time left in barrel gives it smooth oak flavors that make you never want to let go. Pace yourself, though, because the whiskey sits at 107 proof — the highest of all the Old Rip Van Winkle bourbons.
It pours a hazy copper in the glass, and has a big palate to match the big alcohol. By some sort of distilling magic, the flavors aren't overwhelmed. Aromas of dried cherry, honey, cinnamon and cooked sugar drift off the glass. A full body of caramel, toffee, and peppery spice lands on your tongue with each sip, and a long and satisfying finish stays with you long after you swallow.
Pappy Van Winkle's 15 Year Family Reserve comes with a big price tag for good reason. It's released only twice a year in super small allocations. The hype and demand causes prices to spike. But drink it for yourself — neat, of course, and with only the best of friends — and you'll realize it deserves all the interest it gets from bourbon lovers.
