Hirsch Releases The Cask Strength Finished in Cognac Barrels

Hirsch The Cask Strength Cognac

Hirsch Selected Whiskeys announced its limited time offering of The Cask Strength Finished in Cognac Barrels. With only 9,000 bottles available nationwide, this exclusive release has been aged for 6 years before finishing in 30-Year-Old HINE Cognac XO barrels for 18th months, resulting in a rich, complex, and well-rounded whiskey from Bardstown, Kentucky.

Bottled at cask strength, this expression is one of the newest innovations to come from Hirsch. The now legendary bourbon A.H. Hirsch Reserve – commissioned in 1974 –established the A.H. Hirsch legacy and this partnership with HINE Cognac is an expression of artisanal spirit. That expression is widely considered the best American bourbon ever produced – even inspiring revered whiskey expert Chuck Cowdery to write the book, The Best Bourbon You’ll Never Taste.

A.H. Hirsch was an investment banker and philanthropist who invested in the Schaefferstown Distillery, a historic landmark for American whiskey in operation for more than two centuries.

Hirsch Whiskey The Cask Strength Finished in Cognac Barrels is bottled at cask strength (62.5% ABV) with a proof of 127, and a suggested SRP of $199.99/750ml bottle. The mash bill is comprised of 72% corn, 13% rye, 15% malted barley. The limited-time offering is available in select stores nationwide. Luxury e-commerce platform ReserveBar will offer a limited number of bottles online while supplies last here
