Sold out there but it is still on shelves around me.
Yes, indeed! It was a Bourbon mashbill distilled at the old Hiram Walker plant in Peoria, thrown into used barrels, but was never intended to age that long. When I first tried it, I hated it, but it really started to grow on me. There's an odd sweetness up front that differs from Bourbon sweetness. If that sounds strange, I guess it is. The finish is very "resiny" in a nice way. It's such an oddball that I kinda cherish the last bottle I have, as you won't see this type of spirit again. (At least not anytime soon.) And I thought that $55 was not a crazy price for a 20yr whiskey.
