Pappy Van Winkle 10-Year Aged Bourbon
See a rich, copper color. Smell enticingly sweet, spicy, caramel-nut-fudge aromas. Enjoy a fruity, medium-to full-bodied palate with intense dried fruit and toasted nuts notes. Each sip finishes with a very long, bold wave of peppery brown spices, floral honey and charred barrel flavors that balance the weight of the alcohol. It’s a big, bold, aged bourbon that has great balance for its high proof and flavor (read more from Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery!). A bottle of this delightful bourbon can be yours through Bloom in Transit!
