Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Butterscotch on the nose, with soft sweetness and Demerara sugar.

Palate: Soft with gentle spices, charcoal, cinnamon bark, hints of cold coffee and honey.

Finish: Pertains to sweetness, but really the beauty of this is the aromatic savouriness that lies underneath the caramel.

User Reviews of the Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year Old

Fantastic taste and quality, absurd pricing.

Wonderful stuff - quality and taste is top shelf. Price is absurd if you happen to come across a bottle, you shouldn't be paying any more than $150 MAX.

I have had this and EH Taylor Single Barrel. They are my two absolute favorite Bourbon's. However, the EH Taylor is my choice every time because it is actually possible to buy a bottle at MRSP

Like hens teeth

I am a Scotch drinker that was put on to this glorious bourbon by a friend. Unfortunately it's damned near impossible to get a bottle here in Canada. Luckily that same friend was able to get me one of the 3 bottles that was allotted to the entire Atlantic provinces this year. So happy to have it in my collection!

....and it only cost me £100

The Yanks make fab Whisky

Amazingly smooth and the experience begins once you poor it and ends minutes after the first drink. Cinnamon is really noticeable in this fine bourbon. Cheers!
