Taste
Pappy Van Winkle 10 Year Bourbon is an elite bourbon, worthy of any bourbon connoisseur. This luxurious line of bourbon is named after the iconic Julian P. Van Winkle, Sr. who was called "Pappy" by family and friends who appreciated him dearly. It is produced at the award winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. This marvelous blend is crafted from Mash Bill #2, like other great blends such as Blanton's, William Larue, and Elmer T. Lee. It is a sour mash of corn, malted barely, and extra rye. This bourbon is rich and complex with bright notes of strong vanilla and toasted wood aromas. On the palate you notice a buttery mouthfeel, mingled with rich notes of caramel, layered with essence of roasted nuts. The finish is long and  spicy with a lingering buttery mouthfeel all throughout. 

History
Pappy Van Winkle 10 Year Bourbon is known as a unicorn in the bourbon community. It is an iconic bourbon created to commemorate the legacy of Julian P. Van Winkle, Sr. best known as "Pappy" by those who knew him and loved him. Pappy began working at W.L. Weller & Sons in 1893 as a traveling whiskey salesman and eventually became the President of Stitzel-Weller Distillery. During this time he sold Old Fitzgerald and earned an outstanding reputation for his commitment to a fine bourbon. His vow is still honored today. During this time bourbon wasn't selling and Pappy's son, Julian Jr., ended up selling the business in 1972. It was one of his biggest regrets so he formed a company called "J.P. Van Winkle and Son" just in case his son wanted to continue the bourbon business. He got into marketing bourbon through many types of commemorative decanters and would bottle on the side. In 1981 Julian III took over the business after his father passed away. He was 32 years old and married with 4 children, one boy, and triplet girls. During this time, there wasn't a lot of demand for premium bourbon. But, he didn't let that discourage him. As his grandfather, Pappy started from the ground up, too. So, with the same passion in mind, Julian the Third purchased the Old Hoffman Distillery in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, for barrel storage and bottling purposes. He couldn't afford to advertise, but the quality of Old Rip Van Winkle sold itself. In 1997 Julian III scored 99/100 from a beverage testing institute. Soon he was being contacted by people interested in carrying his product. When first approached by Buffalo Trace, Julian III was honored, but not immediately interested. He had enough bourbon aging, but the concern was for future reserves since bourbon was increasing in popularity. Buffalo Trace bought the W.L. Weller label in 1999 and has been making the bourbon with nearly the same recipe as Pappy. The transition was easy, and as of May 2002, Buffalo Trace has produced the Van Winkle bourbons, using Pappy's exact recipe. This change allows Old Rip Van Winkle to maintain their strict quality standards while producing more barrels for future enjoyment.

The Glencairn Whisky Glass set is an innovative whiskey glass that allows one to savor the taste and complexity of fine whiskey. These are great to use for any of your Single Barrel Bourbons, Irish, and Single Malt Whiskeys. Its tapered mouth allows you to smell all of the pleasant aromas whisky has to offer. Any whisky connoisseur will love a Glencairn glass! All spirits have their Glass that bests compliments the experience. Glencairn Crystal is the ideal glass for whiskey, it was designed by Raymond Davidson nearly 25 years earlier, however, its development involved gathering the master blenders from the five largest whiskey companies and asking them to help perfect his initial design. Even though the whiskey glass's traditional style is a cut crystal Old Fashioned whiskey tumbler, it does not hold and focus the aromas as much for the experience of the drinker as the other styles, which curve inward towards the top of the glass. While not all drinkers may find the strong aroma produced by such glasses desirable, inward-curved glasses are often preferred by connoisseurs who consider the aroma especially important to the experience of a whiskey.

 

 JM's Dominican Churchill Maduro cigars are value-priced premium cigars which are manufactured by the JM Tobacco Company in Santiago, Dominican Republic. JM's are handmade with prime Dominican Cuban-seed long filler tobaccos. These Cigars are hand rolled from well-aged Cuban seed tobacco leaves which are grown in the rich soils of the Dominican Republic and then wrapped carefully in a dark and oily Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper to create a bold, and hearty cigar. The honey-like sweetness and the natural sweet aroma of the Connecticut broadleaf binder make this cigar an enjoyably smooth and flavorful of earthy smoke.
