Have you ever heard the buzz, read the reviews and got caught up in the build up to a particular bottle of bourbon and when you finally try it, you just go,... "well it ain't bad but the hype is not justified."
This has happened to me a few times.
Saturday I finally got to my Van Winkle Family Reserve Lot B.
I repeat, WOW!
This is one classy bottle of whiskey.
I love the dried fruits, mmmmm apricots, the 90.4 proof I thought was going to be to low, but it is perfect.
I got out a snifter and have my nose in the glass when not drinking, I can't get enough of that aroma.
I have to say that I like it better than Pappy 20 and 15 year old, and that is saying a lot.
Oh so nice not to be let down.
