Pappy Van Winkle 20 year old Family Reserve, 45.2%

Price: $85 Issue: Winter 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

Amber mahogany. Rich, mature aromas of vanilla, cinnamon, leather, teaberry, coconut, and dark fruit-very complex indeed. Big, coating, soothing texture. Flavors are very mature, rounded and nicely balanced, with notes of molasses, dried fruit, cinnamon, and teaberry. It finishes long, with a very soothing demeanor.
