Hirsch Whiskey The Bivouac

The latest release from Hirsch Whiskey is The Bivouac Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

Bivouac — pronounced “be-voo-ak” — is defined as a temporary camp, alluding to a certain way of travel.

“Hirsch, The Bivouac at 100 proof is made for the modern explorer and designed for those who toast nature,” says American whiskey lead at Hotaling & Co, Luis Rivas Ball. “Each bottle features a grid on the back label with exact batch specifications, as transparency is key for us at HIRSCH.”

Distilled in Bardstown, KY, The Bivouac combines two straight bourbons:

  • 95% of the blend is distilled from a mash bill of 74% corn, 18% rye, and 8% malted barley
  • 5% is distilled from a high malted barley mash aged for at least eight years, for added complexity

Company-provided tasting notes are as follows:

  • Nose: Cinnamon, vanilla, hint of straw and stone fruit
  • Palate: Sweetness with honey, subtle dark chocolate, oak
  • Finish: Hints of cinnamon and a lingering warmth

The Bivouac retails for a suggested price of $55 per 750-ml. bottle. It is currently available on shelves in select markets, with national availability as of Oct. 1, 2022. It will be available on ReserveBar.com and other national ecommerce sites later this year.
