We received a private bottle of this bottling of Van Winkle Special Reserve. The bourbon was aged for 12 yearsbottled at 45,2% vol. and was a smooth, mature whiskey. It made a perfect filling for a Lubeca dark chocolate shell, which we topped with pecans. The delicious, bitter sweetness of the chocolate mixed with the rich sweet warmth of the bourbon made a truly indulgent praline.
