In 1974, when A.H. Hirsch first imagined his now-legendary bourbon, he set the gold standard for thoughtful American whiskey, developing the now-legendary A.H. Hirsch 16-Year-Old Reserve, a whiskey that’s famously been called the “best bourbon you’ll never taste.” Today, bottles of A.H. Hirsch 16-Year can go for more than $12,000 in some retail stores.
What does that have to do with the Bivouac? Well, everything — HIRSCH used a custom mash bill based on that legendary whiskey to develop this brand-new, stunning release! The good news is, this particular edition is much more affordable than its predecessor, yet no less premium.
The Bivouac is a blend of two whiskeys:
95% of the blend is from a 3yr, 9mo bourbon distilled by Bardstown Bourbon Company, using a 74% corn, 18% rye, 8% barley mash bill
5% of the blend is from an 8yr bourbon distilled by Willett, and uses the same 72% corn, 13% rye, 15% malted barley recipe as last year's Hirsch Single Barrel
50% ABV - 100 Proof
