The perfect combination of age and proof, this sweet, full-bodied Kentucky Bourbon has been described by some as “nectar.” It’s aged 12 years in charred, new American oak barrels, and bottled at an approachable 90.4, which seems to be just right for a very pleasant dram. The whiskey scored 98 points by the Beverage Testing Institute.

Product Details

This Kentucky Bourbon can stand up to any Cognac as an after dinner drink. The overall character is rich, deep, elegant and balanced. This sweet, full-bodied spirit has been described by some as “nectar,” and is the perfect combination of age and proof. Its twelve years of aging in charred, new American oak barrels and bottling at 90.4 proof seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant dram. Sip it neat, or add a little water or ice and watch it evolve.

About the Producer

Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon is produced in Kentucky at the Buffalo Trace Distillery, a distillery named for the buffalo that carved paths through the wilderness that led America’s first pioneers westward. Situated on the banks of the Kentucky River, the site has had a working distillery since 1787, but the official Buffalo Trace production began in 1857. It obtained one of only four permits offered during Prohibition to maintain production for "medicinal purposes." Today, the distillery sits on a picturesque one hundred nineteen acres that was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2013, and produces several labels of Bourbon.
