One of the many things that sets Coaltrain apart from other specialty wine shops and large box retailers is our ability to procure hard to find, specialty items. In addition to our spectacular wine and beer selection, our cordial and liquor sections feature a number of these items.
Let’s talk about bourbon; only a handful of stores in Colorado are able to get product from the Van Winkle distillery. We’ve recently received another allocation and currently have in stock 10, 12, 20 & 23 year old Rip Van Winkle and Pappy Van Winkle. The 12 year old Pappy Van Winkle, we think, is the best value in bourbon today. Receiving 98 points from the Beverage Tasting Institute, this bourbon can easily compete with any excellent cognac as an after dinner drink. It combines the perfect combination of age and proof. Currently on our shelves at 44.99, this limited bourbon won’t be on our shelves long.
If a spectacular gift is in someone’s future, the 23 year old, available in miniscule amounts and getting the 2010 “Spirit of the Year” award, will make someone’s Christmas one to remember…All these great bourbons are available in very small quantities, and generally, only this time of the year.
Let’s toast American distilling!
