Nice bourbons Jeff... A couple years ago at Auction, I bought two cases of the A.H. Hirsch 16 year reserve. It's my birthyear so I figured it might be fun to throw in the cellar. I have opened one bottle and that was three years ago. Since then, the pricing on the stuff has gone just NUTTY. Who knows, if you come 'round here after my b-day next year, there might be a bottle open! I like it neat. My friend who loves his bourbon didn't hesitate to drop some ice cubes in it. Hey, to each, his own!
