David Nicholson 1966 '1843' Brand Bonded 7 Year Old / Stitzel-Weller
A fantastic 1970s example of this 7 year old straight bourbon, rarely seen outside of America.
Distilled in 1966 at Stitzel-Weller distillery, when it was still under the ownership of the Van Winkle family. The legendary 'Pappy' had died the year before, having handed the reigns to his son, Julian II, in 1964. It was bottled in 1973 by new Stizel-Weller owners Somset Imports, to whom Julian had been forced to sell the distillery the year before. These Van Winkle distilled Stitzel-Weller bourbons are true collector's pieces.
This example was bottled for the Peter Hauptmann Co. in St Louis, Missouri.
Bottled in bond at the legally required 100 US proof.
