Old Rip Van Winkle 25 Year Old Bourbon

It's tough enough to get your hands on Van Winkle bourbons, and the latest, and oldest release from the Pappy distillers promises to be even more exclusive. Old Rip Van Winkle 25-Year-Old Bourbon was distilled in the spring and fall of 1989 and stored on lower levels of a metal warehouse built in 1935 at the Van Winkle family distillery. In 2002 the barrels found a new home at Buffalo Trace and in 2014 the juice was dumped into stainless steel tanks to halt the aging process. And now, it's ready for release. But only 11 barrels made the full trip, resulting in a mere 710 bottles. Each one is housed in a handmade glass decanter with bottle information, individual numbering, and a hand finished silver stopper. The special bottles reside in a handmade wooden box that comes with a bourbon certificate of authenticity, numbered and signed by Julian Van Winkle himself.

  • Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Bourbon

    The third release in the Whiskey Row series from Old Forester is the best of the bunch. Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Bourbon pays tribute to a period in American history where the only distilleries licensed to produce bourbon did it for medicinal purposes, and had to have a federal license. Brown-Forman, owner of the Old Forester brand, was one of the few making bourbon during Prohibition, and this release reflects the style that would have been distilled and bottled during the era. Bourbon distilled during Prohibition was required to be bottled at 100 proof, but 1920 arrives at 115 proof to account for the angel's share that an aged bourbon from the time period would represent.

  • Barrell Bourbon New Year

    We can't think of a better way to kick 2016 out the door than by sipping on some cask strength bourbon. And New Year from Barrell Bourbon might be the most appropriate spirit to have on hand to help usher in 2017. 5, 7, 8, 9, and 13-year old Straight Bourbons from Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee were blended to make this limited edition release that clocks in at 117 proof. Of course, all of the releases in the Barrell line are bottled at cask strength, but this special blend provides loads of flavor and a long finish to enjoy before, during, and after the new year begins.
