This is not the standard 13-year-old Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye. In 2001, the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery released a 15-year-old non-chill filtered version of their classic rye whiskey, as an experiment for the European market. The Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 1985 was distilled in 1985 at the Medley distillery in Owensboro and bottled at 100 proof by Julian III at the Old Commonwealth Distillery in Lawrenceburg. Old Rip Van Winkle moved its bottling operation to Frankfort in 2002, so this is one of the last bottlings from the old facility. Over the years, the Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye has consisted of a few different components. When the whiskey was first released, it was 100% Medley distillery rye. In 2004, the rye was moved to stainless steel tanks to stop the aging process, and blended with Cream of Kentucky Rye from the Old Bernheim distillery. Since 2004, the annual release has consistently been called a 13-year-old rye, even though most of it contains rye that actually matured for 18 or 19 years. Confusing, we know. But not to worry, the bottle we have right here was bottled in 2001, and has thus not been blended with anything: it is a 100% authentic, non-confusing 15-year-old Medley rye!
