Proof66 Notes

David Nicholson 1843 bourbon is named for the historical figure David Nicholson who is described as a grocer in St. Louis who made his own brand of whiskey beginning in the year 1843. The brand name was eventually sold to Julian Van Winkle... eventually the brand name was bought back by Missouri-based Luxco who began producing the bourbon in 2000. The bottle is labeled as "Kentucky Straight Bourbon" but the filing with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau notes the Luxco facilities in Ohio and Missouri as the producers. We guess that the whiskey is being acquired in Kentucky from an undisclosed source and then bottled independently by Luxco. It is a bottled-in-bond bourbon in that it is bottled at a ful 100 proof.

The bourbon once carried a 7yr age statement but, in the lamentable practice by an ever-increasing number of mercenary distilleries, the age statement was dropped when the packaging was updated. There are several rumors among different blogs suggesting that the source of the bourbon is Heaven Hill Distilleries.
