15 years old – 107 proof.
My grandfather, Julian P. “Pappy” Van Winkle, Sr., started working as a salesman for W.L. Weller & Sons wholesale in Louisville, KY in 1893 at the age of eighteen, just after he graduated from Centre College in Danville, KY.
This bourbon represents a younger expression of our famous 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve. The whiskey in this bottle was produced according to our exclusive family wheated recipe and was specially selected from barrels in the heart of our warehouses here in Kentucky. It has remained undisturbed for 15 years to age in deep-charred heavy oak…untouched by human hands…unhurried by time. I am proud to set my family name upon it.
