I have a terrible confession.
I prefer the Van Winkle 10YO (107 proof) to the Van Winkle 15YO (107 proof).
They've both got that really distinctive 'honecombe' aroma and taste but the greater rye influence in the 10YO makes it spicier and hotter, which for me adds to the overall enjoyment.
I've tried 3 Van Winkle whiskies now - the 13YO rye, and the 2 above. The rye is still a clear winner for me but I just love the 10YO.
Anyway its all good
