I was at my weekly Friday wine/beer tasting a few months ago when the liquor guy told me he had something special stashed away for me. I asked what and he told me "Pappy 15." For some dumb reason I actually asked how much, which came to the reply of "Does it matter?" No it didn't, but for the record it was around $70, which was quite the deal in my opinion.
This is reportedly the first 100% Buffalo Trace produced Van Winkle. It was previously produced by Stitzel-Weller. This bad boy is 107 proof. It has a lot of the usual adjectives, wood, cinnamon, maple, dark fruit. vanilla, spice. I like it when it's slightly diluted. It's more bold than my bottle of Pappy 23, which I still prefer. Damn good stuff. If you ever have the chance to grab a Van Winkle product. Pounce on it.
