Auction Ended: Sunday 01 December, 2019

Winning Bid: £410.00

Estimate: £400 - £600
Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof. 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 whiskey. This fine bourbon can compete with any excellent cognac as an after-dinner drink. The overall impression is rich and deep. See a brilliant, amber-orange colour. Smell luscious, complex toffee. Taste a round, supple entry, leading to a dry, expansive, medium body. Enjoy notes of caramel, nuts, and brown spices with a lengthy, enveloping finish. It's an outrageously smooth and decadent bourbon.

Length: 12 Year Old
