    A. H. Hirsch....

    Looking at purchasing a bottle of Hirsch Reserve 16 yr bottled on '03. Anything I need to know about this bottling before making a decision? Your opinions of this bourbon?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Tim,

    There is SO much info on the Hirsch line of bourbons here that a search will produce tons of stuff.

    In a nutshell, to me, it's one of the best and will be missed when gone.

    Tim,

    Not a favorite of mine...and it's expensive. There are other bourbon's I would purchase over the Hirsch. Remember, taste is subjective. If you have an opportunity to try this bourbon at a bar or something, do that first. I find the 3rd round of Hirsch to be somewhat metalic. To me, it's not a bad bourbon, just not in my top 5.

    Vange is right. Best bet is to do a search. We've talked about the Hirsch and the distillery where it was made, Michter's, quite a bit.

    Put me down as one of the people who thinks this is an outstanding whiskey. Even though it's expensive, if I could afford to I would buy every bottle I could find.

    I just opened one of my bottles this weekend. Simply outstanding (in my novice opinion). And $50 here in PA ain't that bad a price to pay (while supplies last).

    Re: A. H. Hirsch....

    $50?? Wow, I haven't found it for $50 in a few years now.

    To put it into perspective, I liked AH Hirsch's taste and mystique so much that I went on bottle hunts both online and in person.

    My Hirsch stash:

    18 foil tops
    4 blue wax
    3 gold wax
    1 black wax
    3 20s
    1 19

    I tried a gold foil awhile back and didn't care for it. I was able to have a pour from a blue-wax bottle and thought it was fantastic. I'd pay a fair price to find a blue-was bottle of my own.

    AHH is a top shelf bourbon that you will enjoy as I have.

    Click here. If you skim the whole thread, you'll find a few members who agree with me. Most do not.

    For more do an advanced search, key word: "hirsch", user name: "bluesbassdad".
