Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 15 Year Old Bourbon. Image courtesy Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery. These notes are for the Fall 2013 release of Pappy 15, which has a nose of roasted almonds, maple, honey, vanilla, and nutmeg. The taste is thick and spicy with chilli powder, black pepper, molasses, maple, and dark chocolate notes. The finish is long, mouth-filling, and spicy. (February, 2014)
