Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 20 Years Old Bourbon
This is the bourbon to have at your side when you want to show Scotch a thing or two about complexity, satisfaction and taste. Only bested by the much more scarce 23 Year Old, Pappy's isn't for Manhattans. Sip it neat and sparing for its honey, wood, smoke and spice subtlety. It isn't benign but it slides down buttery smooth. If you're inclined, a serious cigar wouldn't hurt. Pour Pappy's for a nice vacation in a single glass. If you're really lucky, you'll stumble on a bottle of the fleeting 23.
a delicious (if super-expensive) bourbon. almost caramely. shitcan that soco and enjoy something good. you deserve it (probably).
Forget everything you thought you knew about good Bourbon, or whiskey, for that matter. Pappy`s 20 year, is smoother than smooth, and for all intensive purposes, flawless. Exqusite, and without competition, with the only exceptions being Pappy`s 12 yr., Pappy`s 15 yr. and the awesomely decadent Pappy`s 23 yr. I realize that this review sounds too good to be true, but this stuff, is that good. I have done a number of taste tests, putting Pappy`s up against my former top shelf, and ultra premium spirits, and Pappy`s has remained undefeated, and untied throughout these comparisons.
