As the #1 rated Bourbon Whiskey in the world with a 99 out of 100 rating by the World Spirits Championship this highly coveted Pappy Van Winkle bourbon is aged 20 years and bottled at 90.4 proof for a wonderfully smooth and rich profile. Pappy Van Winkle Reserve 20-Year bourbon is intense and tantalizing, smooth tasting with a citrus zest note. You will find some sherry notes, dried fruits, and vanilla in this bourbon whiskey. The finish is long and elegant as Pappy Van Winkle is well-known for.

The Harrington Family Foundation Weller Full Proof Single Barrel Select bourbon is a philanthropic collaboration between Buffalo Trace Distillery and Joey Harrington. William Larue Weller developed his original bourbon recipe with wheat, rather than rye. This single barrel select was hand-picked in 2023 by Joey Harrington.

“The smell of this bourbon is what ultimately made me choose it. It simply jumps out of the glass. The longer it sat the more it opened and brought forward the notes of leather and vanilla. It’s so unique in that it brings the flavor punch and heat of a Weller Full Proof (114 proof) but add a drop of water and it becomes the easiest drinking bourbon on the shelf. It’s a perfect balance of strong and smooth,” says Joey.

The Grand Prize Winner will also receive Joey Harrington’s original handwritten tasting notes when selecting the Weller Full Proof Single Barrel Select at Buffalo Trace Distillery.

Raffle tickets will be sold at $100/each and available for purchase online from November 3 to 12, 2023. Only 1500 raffle tickets will be sold. Participants may purchase multiple raffle tickets.
