Pappy Van Winkle is regarded as the most premium bourbon whiskey in the world, making it incredibly rare and hard to obtain. As the New York Times notes: “For the dedicated whiskey connoisseur, getting a taste of Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve bourbon is a Tolkien-worthy quest.”
However, Whisky Loot has got its hands on three of Pappy’s most iconic juices and is breaking the bottles to give 10 Australian whisky lovers the opportunity to experience these rare drams.
The whisky subscription service has created 10 limited edition Pappy packs – RRP $689 – each containing 3 x 60ml tasters of Pappy’s 15 year, 20 year and 23 year family reserves.
● Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year – The youngest of the range is still exceptionally old for a Bourbon aged in the heat of Kentucky. Contains the same wheated Bourbon as the older bottlings, but this dram is presented at a feisty barrel proof of 53.5%, ensuring a full body and intensely spicy profile.
● Pappy Van Winkle 20 Year – Ranked the number one bourbon whiskey in the world. This dram’s two decade slumber in heavily charred oak barrels producing an opulent and maddeningly complex whiskey. Bottled at 45.2%, it hits the sweet spot between drinkability and richness.
● Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year – After 23 years in heavily charred oak barrels, this dram has developed a uniquely sophisticated profile. Truly one of the rarest whiskies in the world.
Whisky Loot has created a ballot enabling entrants to put their name and details forward to win the opportunity to purchase. Launching on World Whisky Day, May 15, 2021, the ballot will have two draws: one for active Whisky Loot subscribers and one for the public.
The winners will be drawn on June 7 and will then have 24 hours to purchase this exclusive pack.
