About the A. H. Hirsch Finest Reserve 20 Years Old Red Wax
What’s that bright Red Wax top?! It’s blinding our eyes with its beauty! Can it be…? No, this whiskey is rarely seen… But wait, it really is an A. H. Hirsch 1974 Finest Reserve 20 Years Old Red Wax! When Adolf Hirsch commissioned this whiskey to be distilled at the Pennco Distillery in Pennsylvania (which was called Michter’s Distillery before that and Shenk’s and Bomberger’s before that) in 1974, he did not know that it would be cut up in different batches after Pennco went bankrupt. In 1990, Hirsch sold his whiskey to the Hue Family from Kentucky, who in their turn transferred a large sum of the then 16-year-old whiskey into steel tanks. The remaining stock was allowed to age longer, of which this 20 year old Finest Reserve is living proof. It was bottled late 1994 and early 1995. The Red Wax is a beacon for bourbon lovers all over the world.
