A.H. Hirsch 18yr, 93pf, 1992

AH Hirsch 18 yr is the rarest of all of the AH Hirsch releases.  There were only 37 cases (444) bottles released.  Speculation was that it was the remaining inventory of the bourbon that was tanked and released as a 17 year old (Some say it didn’t actually meet the requirements for an 18 year label).  It is the only Hirsch offering that wasn’t either 91.6 or 95.6 proof (it was 93 proof).  It is possible that was because that particular dilution made for an even number of cases.  The bottle pictured here represents one of only 24 bottles that were sold domestically.  Gordon Hue, who owned all of the Hirsch stock, released the rest of them overseas.
