I was at 'my' liquor store today and they trotted out some 'Hirsch' Canadian rye whiskey. I was a bit taken aback. They had an 8 year old, a 10 year old, and a 12 year old, priced in the $30 range. I had previously told the dealer to get anything with the 'Hirsch' label, hoping for some 20 YO Hirsch. The 'Hirsch' label looked just like the label on the A H Hirsch bourbon bottles.......which has been out of production for a while now.
I don't know if this distillery, which is located in Nova Scotia, has bought the 'Hirsch' name or what. The label was trade marked. Anybody know anything about this?
Because the whiskey was so light colored, I presume it was aged in new uncharred oak.
I did not purchase any, I am awaiting more information.
