Pappy Van Winkle's 20 Year Old Family Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey $99.

Beautiful copper color with an olive cast. Lavish aromas of caramelized pecans, chocolate fudge, and rich baking spices. A bold, powerful entry leads to a dryish full body of intense dried fruits, buttery praline, vibrant baking spices. Finishes with a seemingly endless and evolving cascade that introduces notes of cigar box, sweet tobacco, leather, dried tangerine, and so on... In short, a monumental bourbon.
