A cask strength bourbon from Old Rip Van Winkle, this is rich, sweet and incredibly smooth and toasty. One of the best American whiskeys we've ever tried…
Nose: Sweet and soft, with notes of wheat, corn and custard. Caramel, candy floss and dried fruits.
Palate: Rich and thick with notes of caramel, vanilla, dates, walnuts, coffee beans and soft oak. Very buttery and incredibly smooth.
Finish: Long and spicy with notes of gingernut biscuit and golden syrup on the tail.

Better than the 12 & 15 year!

We had lunch at the Vintage Estates Winery Pub in Boardman Ohio, yesterday, and had Old Rip Van Winkle, fantastic

Cast strength is relative to the position (height in the warehouse-being one aspect) thou many cast strengths are higher as the writer below stated but many can and are in this range

I had a rather large dram of this last night for the first time, and I have to say this stuff is amazing! I personally like it better than the Pappy 15. Great wood and candy scents on the nose, with classic bourbon flavors amplified. It's as if someone just turned up the volume on this one a little more than normal. The result makes it much better than a lot of others out there.

I was extremely lucky and found the 10, 12 and 15 year old van winkle bourbons and bought a bottle of all 3. The 10 year 107 proof is dangerously smooth. I will hunt bottles of this for the rest of my life.

This is a lovely intensely flavourful wheated bourbon, and probably the best taste to value for the money ratio among the Van Winkle products. There are three Van Winkles to especially seek out, especially for value: the Pappy Van Winkle 15 yo, the 13 yo Rye and this 107 proof 10 yo Old Rip Van Winkle. Delicious, all. The 90 proof Old Rip Van Winkle is much less robust than is this 107 proof. Also note, that in the US 53.5% is not usually cask strength, which is more typically 60-70%.
