Van Winkle 13 Year Old Family Reserve Rye / 2008 Release

This is bottle A3185, and was released in 2008 (possibly early 2009) when the whiskey was actually now 19 years old, despite the label. The Van Winkle Family Reserve rye was distilled in 1985 and actually continued to age in cask until 2004 when it was eventually tanked at Buffalo Trace. They are all labelled as 13 years old regardless.

The Family Reserve Rye is presumed to have been distilled at Medley in Owensboro, with Cream of Kentucky rye from Bernheim blended through it after it was tanked in 2004. The rye was the last of the true Van Winkle family reserves to run out, in 2016. New batches have been maturing at Buffalo Trace however, and were bottled for the first time in 2018.
