The Full Review
Gone are the days when this expression presented affordable insight to the lauded Van Winkle lineup. Whether or not you want to spend an average of $60 on this bourbon, may depend on whether you enjoyed it before the hype. But this bottle remains an enjoyable, high-quality wheated offering. It serves fresh fruit on the nose, with apples and cranberries on leading to vanilla, caramel, and cedar-wood. The palate is lean and fruity, with accents of spice, and decent complexity.
