The 'entry level' of the Old Rip Van Winkle offerings, this 10 year-old wheated bourbon is NOT Pappy! Yes, same mash bill, same family of products, but not Pappy. It is bottled at close to cask strength at 107 proof. A splash of limestone water is added prior to bottling. Made at Buffalo Trace Distillery. Yearly allocations released in the fall with an even smaller allocation the following spring.

Tasting Notes

"The nose has Madagascar vanilla, vine-ripened fruits, honey, and wheat. On the palate, you'll find maple sugar, butterscotch, nutmeg, and Red Hots. Dried fruits and sweet caramel continue through the decently long finish. "
