"One of the worlds great whiskies " 

"This bourbon takes a back seat to none"

"A whiskey connoisseur's bonanza...remarkable find...ranks with the best whiskies."

Also known as the famous Pappy.  

The Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Old 107 Proof is a highly esteemed bourbon whiskey known for its rich and complex flavour profile. This bourbon is bottled at nearly barrel proof, with just a splash of Kentucky limestone water added after a decade of aging. It's part of the prestigious Van Winkle collection and is produced by Buffalo Trace Distillery.

The 2013 bottle stands out amongst Pappy's.
