Handmade Bourbon Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof. This sweet, full bodied whiskey has been described by some as "nectar." We agree! The 12 years of aging and medium proof of 45,2 apy (90.4 proof) seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant drink of whiskey. This fine whiskey can compete with any excellent cognac as an after dinner drink. The overall impression is rich and deep.
The 12 Year Old Special Reserve was recognized with the "Trophy for Worldwide Whisky" and a Best-In-Class Gold Medallion in the International Wine and Spirit Competition for 2008.
