In the glass, Old Ripy has a light amber, copper coloring. It’s not a viscous-looking whiskey, and steams legs.
The nose is sweet with orange cream and vanilla. It also has a quite nutty side, surprisingly so. An oaky note rounds out the scent. The liquid sits light on the palate, and smacks of fruit like a swallow of apple and orange juice, seasoned with baking spices. The chewy nuts are there again too, making this like an interesting nut cake. This washes down as nutty, turning to a lingering sweet vanilla and very light warmth.
