This quite fabulous 12 year old straight Kentucky Bourbon whiskey was produced at the Old Rip Van Winkle distillery and was bottled at 45.2% ABV for the Van Winkle Special Reserve series in 2009.
Drawn from charred American oak barrels, this limited edition Bourbon is released in very small batches annually and is described as a full-bodied, smooth and mature whiskey. First released in 1991, this series had just one release from Lot A before Lot B followed on.
There have been four generations of Van Winkle's working for the company since Julian Van Winkle III was joined by his son Preston in 2001. The Van Winkles decided to move all distilling to the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky in 2002 - previously it was produced in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.
