A.H. Hirsch 1974 15 Year Old Reserve / Gold Wax​

A legendary bottle of Bourbon that has had a whole book written about itself: "The Best Bourbon You'll Never Taste" by Charles K Cowdery.

This is first ever release of the famous A.H. Hirsch reserve, purchased by Gordon Hue in 1989 following the filing for bankruptcy of what had by then become Michter's distillery, where the whisky was distilled and stored. Hue instructed Julien Van Winkle III to bottle this 15 year old straight away. It was not until 1991 that the famous 16 year old would first be released.

This is incredibly rare.
