A.H. Hirsch 1974 16 Year Straight Bourbon Whiskey Gold Foil 750ml
Distilled in Spring 1974, this legendary bourbon has had a whole book written about it: "The Best Bourbon You'll Never Taste" by Charles K Cowdery. Bottled from a single 400 barrel batch commissioned by Adolph Hirsch and distilled under contract at Bomberger's distillery, just outside Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania, the home of the legendary Michter's whisky.
Rich sweetness on the nose, creamy vanilla and caramel, followed by oak spice. The palate echoes the nose with smooth complex layers, revealing soft notes, toffee and vanilla followed by a dry oaky finish with smoke, baking spices and a touch of black pepper.
Considered by many to be one of the finest and unique bourbon whiskeys in existence.
