Van Winkle Family Reserve 13yr old Rye 2008 - 750ml
van winkle family reserve rye - 2008 release
13yr 95.6 proof
Until now, most rye whiskeys were 4 years old or younger. This 13-year rye is one of the oldest rye whiskeys available today. Although age stated at 13 years this whiskey was allowed to age for an additional 6 years before it was tanked thus making it 19 years old. The maturity it has achieved while aging is quite obvious as you take the first sip. Rye whiskey lovers who try this bottling will never look back at the younger versions again. This batch as the rest of the 2004-2011 is a mix of the original distillate from Medley and a 19 year Cream of Kentucky distillate. It is one amazing rye.
