    I got lucky and added 1500ml of Hirsch 22 to the bunker.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? - Winter 2012/2013

    I really like value BIB's (JTS Brown, VOB, etc.) and similarly priced 100/101 proofers (Fighting Cock, Old Forester Signature, OC101, etc.). They are ideal "session" whiskeys when hanging around watching sports with my friends and they don't hurt the wallet when the bottle is emptied. I just noticed that Binny's now has Old Heaven Hill BIB instead of just the lower proof Deluxe. It's dirt cheap at $12 but I'd rather spend an extra $8 and get another bottle of JTS Brown which I know I'll love if the OHH isn't all that good. Any thoughts on this one?

    I liked it very much when it was Old Heaven Hill 10 year old BIB, don't know what the age statement is now.

    I didn't look closely enough to catch the age on it and can't seem to find accurate info when I Google it (I've seen people refer to it as 5, 6 and 10 years old).

    What color is the label? If it's gold it's 4 years old. I almost always have a bottle of this open (though I don't at the moment, ironically). It tastes like a 4 year old Heaven Hill bond (not helpful, I know, sorry). Corny, not as much mint, lately, and relatively dry finish. One of the best values in bourbon, in my opinion, along with the 8 year old 86 proof that seems to be Minnesota only.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Ack, just remembered, the one I was referring to was Very Rare Old Heaven Hill, 10 years old, 100 proof. Buff colored label, I believe it was HH's highest end expression 20 years ago. I used to travel through Bardstown once a year and would pick up a case of this along with a few others.

    Last time I was in Bardstown they still had the brand at Toddy's but the age statement was 8 years and the proof had dropped to 86. I believe the brand is now discontinued.

    Good question, Squire. The short answer is that, no, it does not. The bottle simply says that it is "Bottled by Hirsch Distillers" in Bardstown, KY. This is quite obviously KBD sourced rye and we know how unforthcoming they are with information. That said, it is widely believed that the Hirsch 22 is Medley juice. While I would like to know for sure, and especially dislike the "Hirsch Distillers" bit, I have tasted all of the Hirsch rye bottlings and the 22 was a standout.
