Notes: From what I have gathered this whiskey was originally made by Heaven Hill then rebarreled by Mr Pritchard in his small casks for 3 years

This method of barrelling in small casks causes a much higher proportion of wood/char and a accelerated aging profile.warehouses - all of which contribute to the uniqueness of the bourbon. This is a straight (unblended) sour mash bourbon.

Appearance: Deep patinated copper in the bottle, dark wheat straw in the glass.

First Impression: Deep, heavy oak influence with rye grain influence amidst the corn, caramel, vanilla, ginger, char/oak dried fruit.

Taste: Sweet start with a lot of oak/aging almost immediately. Medium body slightly astringent, short-to-medium finish.

Drinks: A excellent choice for a Manhattan.

Final Thoughts: A good bourbon of a drier style, that is not as common as it used to be. Interesting but at $50 a bottle these days I find it pricey for what it is.

Bottle: Basic square clear flask-type shape with rounded shoulders.Old-style script is printed on the label with simple layout on rectangular label gives it a antique feel. Real cork closure gives it a both authentic and upscale feel.
