Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof. This sweet, full bodied whiskey has been described by some as "nectar." We agree! The 12 years of aging and medium proof of 45,2 apy (90.4 proof) seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant drink of whiskey. This fine whiskey can compete with any excellent cognac as an after dinner drink. The overall impression is rich and deep.

Wine Enthusiasthe bouquet is somewhat lacking in "grip" with initial aromas of peanuts and peanut butter; following aeration the bouquet turns more like fiber/textile. Entry is long, oily, remarkably substantial, and maple sweet; midpalate features tastes of light fudge, maple, chocolate covered orange, caramel and honey. Finish is elegant and sturdy.
