Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23 Years Old 2008 Stitzel Weller - Very rare and the oldest release in the 'Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve' series of bourbons. Only the most careful and expensive distilling method can be used to create a whiskey as special as this one. These barrels were carefully selected from the heart of the warehouse for an added three years of aging. Best enjoyed neat. Any ice or water will dilute the uniqueness.
