Van Winkle 12 Year Old Special Reserve
The 12 year old Special Reserve is one of the original Old Rip Van Winkle brands, bottled by Julian Van Winkle III at his facility in Lawrenceburg.
With stocks beginning to run thin in the early 2000's, Van Winkle came to an agreement with the Sazerac company to move bottling and future production to Buffalo Trace, who were already using the old Stitzel-Weller recipes for the Weller brand.
All Van Winkle products have been produced at Buffalo Trace since 2002.
This is a 2016 bottling.
Bottle code: B1618219:464.
We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.
Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
