Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof in a bourbon. This sweet, full-bodied whiskey has been described by some as “nectar.” The 12 years of aging and medium proof seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant drink of American whiskey. This fine bourbon can compete with any excellent cognac as an after-dinner drink. The overall impression is rich and deep, we’re sure that you’ll keep reaching for Van Winkle Special Reserve bourbon time and time again.
