Old Hickory Blended Bourbon Whiskey
Old Hickory Blended Bourbon is a meritage of bourbon and whiskey bottled at 80 proof and blended to deliver classic flavors for traditional bar mixing or sipping straight. Amber in color, this crowd pleasing bourbon is bright and spicy with attractive aromas of cherry custard, pistachio gelato, and almond nougat. With a silky medium-to-full bodied taste, Old Hickory Blended Bourbon exhibits a tingling, engaging finish with lingering flavors of white toffee, dried cherry, and honey custard.
Deeply rooted in American tradition, Old Hickory Bourbon delivers a refined taste and unique character reminiscent of Andrew Jackson, an acclaimed U.S. President, General and Statesmen. Old Hickory, a connoisseur of fine bourbon, enjoyed his own blend from a distillery on the grounds of the Hermitage, his Tennessee plantation home. Our Old Hickory Bourbon brings that legendary era to life with intense flavor for a unique, enjoyable sipping experience.
If you’ve ever heard an old timer refer to that bottle of Old Hickory with the tagline “Feels nice inside you,” this is a 2014 reboot by the R.S. Lipman Co. of the brand that went out of circulation in the early 80s. “Old Hickory” refers to the nickname of President Andrew Jackson, who graces the label and was known to be a whiskey drinker. This whiskey, made from corn, rye and barley is a blended bourbon, containing a mix of American Bourbon mash bills aged 2 to 7 years in new oak, blended with light corn whiskey aged between 2-7 years in used barrels.
Very sweet caramel with shades of vanilla and light tobacco.
Thin mouth feel, predominant flavor of caramel and corn, nice balance of spice, most notably cinnamon.
Rather quick with a hint of cola on the aftertaste that tends to linger and amplify after the sip. Not as warm of a finish as the higher ABV might suggest.
