Hirsch Selection 1987 20 Year Old American Whisky

Hirsch Selection is a brand of American whisky from Preiss Imports, who purchased and botted the majority of the the original A.H. Hirsch Reserve, and is intended to evoke and honour that legendary batch of bourbon.

This unusual bottling was distilled from a bourbon mash on the 27th of February 1987 but filled into used cooperage (refill barrels) hence not able to be called bourbon. 

The whiskey was distilled in Illinois, most likely at the old American Distilling Company facility in Pekin. Nowadays the distillery owned by MGP, who bought it the year after this was distilled. It no longer produces whiskey.
