48% (96 proof) – A rare bottle only 120 casks were produced from Feb 27, 1987 mash in Illinois.
Tasting on the rocks.
Approx. $90 in NYC for a 750ml. About the same price in the Va ABC stores….. not cheap!
Hirsch 20 Year – The Bourbon Guide review:
|Rater||Nose||Alcohol Burn||Taste Scale||Overall Score|
|Jason||The rating is on my taste scale, but for those that desire wood, spice and pepper with a little licorice this is for you! A special bourbon many will desire to try yet own. Don't get me wrong it is a nice bottle. However, I leave it for others – for me to drink this cheats others who would truly appreciate it.|
|Tripp||No sweetness at all. very woody, spicy, leathery with a very earthy after taste. Not a smooth easy drink. Not my type of flavor but I guess a must have for spice lovers. Given the price, this is not a re-buy for sure.|
