Hirsch Selection Special Reserve Limited Edition 20 Year Old American Whiskey has been aged for a minimum of 20 years in charred oak barrels and is bottled at 96 proof. Although made from a bourbon mash, the whiskey was aged in used barrels rather than new barrels, so it does not meet the technical definitions of a bourbon.

Named after Adolf Hirsch, a former executive of Schenley Co. who bought some aging barrels of bourbon from the famed Michter's Distillery distillery before it closed in 1988. Production of the whiskey totaled just 120 casks, too few to support a standard bottling.
