This whisky was bottled for Preiss Imports by Buffalo Trace, who owns the fictitious business name "Hirsch Distillers" according to the Kentucky Secretary of State. The distillery that produced the whiskey is unknown. Note: The Hirsch Distillers name is owned in Missouri by a different bottler also used by Preiss Imports.
Nose rushes over me with big vanilla, caramel and toffee, varied cereal grains with oats very prominent, corn, multigrain bread, and something earthy. Kinda smells like a granola bar. The palate: oh yes. Moderately sweet, and so "smooth" yet full of stuff -- chocolate, rich toffee, light varied spices, burnt caramel. This is a treat for sure! Finish continues the theme, becoming dryer and mildly chewy (note: let the wookie win). This does it all and does it all very well.
