    Van Winkle in the Media

    JUST GOT THIS FROM JULIAN...

    To all you Van Winkle Bourbon Fans:



    Two of our whiskeys will be featured on “Squawk Box” on CNBC (not MSNBC) tomorrow, Friday the 20th at 7:50 AM.

    Jerald O’Kennard will be talking about his choices for American Whiskeys. His organization, The Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago just gave our new, 15-year, 107 proof, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Bourbon, a “98” rating. Our 10-year 90 proof Old Rip Van Winkle received a 91 rating. Our 12-year, Van Winkle Special Reserve received a “98” rating also in March 0f 2002.

    IT LOOKS LIKE WE’RE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT AROUND HERRE!



    Don’t MISS IT!



    Best regards,

    Julian



    PS. The new 15-year pappy will be on the market in May

    Any reports on the release quantity of this one? Do they expect it to be a one time, or a sustainable bottling? Is it really just 15yo ORVW in a prettier bottle? Inquiring minds and all that jazz...

    Just to mention that I did see the telecast.

    O'Kennard held up the Pappy (probably a 20 yr)and
    after a chuckle about whether that was Pappy on
    the bottle,he proudly proclaimed that bourbon
    was made only in Kentucky. I glad he wasn't asked to comment on how the barrels were flash charred.
