The youngest of the Pappy siblings, this 15 year-old wheated bourbon is now all Buffalo Trace product and no longer has even a trace of the old Stitzel-Weller juice. Barrels chosen to be Pappy Van Winkle are hand-selected and considered their "honey barrels". Released twice a year, the main allocation in October/November then a TINY allocation in the spring. Pappy is considered the 'Holy Grail' of bourbon due to hype and demand. Good luck in your search.

Tasting Notes

"A nose of sun-dried cherries dipped in honey and a bowl of cinnamon-sprinkled cereal. The palate tastes of a melted Heath bar, vanilla saltwater taffy, and charred cinnamon. The finish shows charred wood, cinnamon sugar and wheat."
