In the world of bourbon, few - if any - legends cast as big a shadow as Pappy Van Winkle. So, when I stumbled across bourbon balls made by his triplet great-granddaughters, I knew I was in for a treat. As indulgent as they come and just as delicious. Pairing the rich warmth of bourbon with the sweetness of chocolate will make any aficionado happy. The ideal gift for the chocolate and/or bourbon lover in your life. And absolutely no one should order a box without getting one for his/herself as well.
Handmade in Louisville using Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year. Sold in a 4-piece gift box. Store in refrigerator, best if enjoyed within 1 month. Can be frozen for up to 3 months in airtight container. For best flavor, enjoy at room temperature.
If you ever had bourbon balls before, you haven't had bourbon balls until you've had Pappy's Van Winkle bourbon balls! I've had many differently made bourbon balls since I was 12yrs old. Now 62, I have never had bourbon balls as good as these. They are well worth the money! I received s/12 gift box as a Christmas gift. I immediately called the person upon trying them, thanking her for the great gift. My only suggestion when eating them is to take small bites to really enjoy the taste of these babies. Also, make sure to eat them at room temperature to keep the creamy texture. Right out of the frig the sugar has crystallized making them too sweet in my opinion. You lose the true taste of the bourbon ball. I intend to purchase them every year. Enjoy!
Gave out three boxes of these at Christmas - one to my boss, one to my sibling's SO, and one to my husband for his office. Different people, different tastes, same reaction - Oh My Goodness! Where did you get these little pieces of heaven? Do yourself a favor and buy a box or two - make sure you keep one for yourself! The bourbon is there, but it doesn't overwhelm and the chocolate is smooth and not overly sweet.
