First US release of Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye, from the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery in Lawrenceburg. The mashbill is 38% corn, 51% Rye and 11% malted barley. A652 bottle code, bottled 1999. Although the label states 13 year the whiskey was 14 years old at the time of bottling.

The Van Winkle Rye reportedly started as a single-source whiskey, rumoured to be Medley distillate. When stocks wained the Medley was tanked and mixed 50/50 with Cream of Kentucky Rye whiskey then bottled in limited quantities for each annual release. The F batch is believed to be the second last of this 50/50 Medley / Cream of Kentucky mix, there was no 2017 release as Buffalo Trace were waiting for new stocks to reach the 13 year benchmark.
