I was trying not to start a new thread on this, but I'm going to resort to it anyway. After reading some of the old comments, they ranged from really bad to pretty good to I really like this.


I'm also interested in the age of the bourbon and found no mention of this in my reading. Regardless of the bourbon, I will say straight out, I like the jug!

I remember a Henry McKenna jug from about 15 years ago. At that time, Henry McKenna in the U.S. was a Heaven Hill product while Henry McKenna internationally was still owned by Seagrams and made at Four Roses. The jug was a Four Roses product and, as such, not generally available in the U.S., although I'm sure a few fell through the cracks.

Maybe HH had a subsequent HM jug, but that's the one I know about. If it says "Lawrenceburg, KY" on the label, then it's the Four Roses product.

At the time they also sold, in international markets, a product called No. 1 Bourbon Street. Anyone ever seen that?

The jug itself says Bardstown, it's an 80 proof, I guess i also didn't mention that it says special reserve on the jug. On the fake tax seal holding the stopper down there appears to maybe be a H in the design, maybe.

It came in a box. The box is hexagon shaped and make to look like an old newspaper page, copyright on the box is 1998.

Sorry my initial description was not very good.

Bardstown means it's Heaven Hill. In my little history, I neglected to mention that HH did eventually get the international rights to HM too, though I don't recall exactly when. So, the whiskey is undoubtedly Heaven Hill, probably four to five years old.

It's a straight bourbon from Four Roses, which is a pretty good recommendation.
