Proof66 Notes

Hirsch whiskey is a reference to AH Hirsch from the famous Michter's distillery of Pennsylvania. That distillery went out of business in 1988 and it appears the remaining stock was purchased by Preiss Imports, whom we presume owns the label. There's a lot of confusion over the source and legacy on the various Hirsch label bottlings... as best we can determine, this is blended in Kentucky with the lots of whiskey owned by Preiss Imports.

Fantastic bourbon. Difficult to find, due to the short supply. But hasnt seen the price gouging you see on a lot of whiskey this caliber.

I have to say, I did not have high expectations for this bottle, but liked it a good deal more than I thought I would. There is nothing overpowering here, just a nicely balanced, though somewhat thin, bourbon. Go easy on the water or ice. There is no finish to speak of, but what finish is there is crisp and clean. This is a very smooth, "no challenge" bourbon made for drinking without analyzing or thinking too much about it. Tailgate bourbon.
