Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 23-Year No. 10

Sep 12, 2018

Category: Vices

Pappy Van Winkle makes some of the most desirable whiskey in the world. But it is also extremely rare and hard to get one’s hands on. Now, however, a bottle of one of their rarest bourbons ever — the Family Reserve 23-year — is headed to public auction.

Already remarkably limited, this bottle (serial number 10) is exceedingly special as it is the second-rarest still in existence that was available to the public, since bottles 1-5 are the property of the Van Winkle family and numbers 7, 8, and 9 have been consumed already. Distilled at the Old Rip Van Winkle’s distillery before they moved to Kentucky under the Buffalo Trace umbrella, this insanely rare spirit is expected to fetch at least $20,000 (its estimated value) when it hits the block at Kentucky’s Speed Art Museum during their Art of Bourbon event.

Purchase: $20,000+
