Hancock's President's Reserve Bourbon 750 ML Hard to Find !

Hancock's President's Reserve is a single barrel high rye-content premium bourbon from Buffalo Trace distillery. One of the original single barrel bourbons introduced by Elmer T. Lee during his time as distillery manager of what was then known as the George T. Stagg distillery (now Buffalo Trace), Hancock's President's Reserve has always enjoyed a good reputation, and was recently described by Jim Murray in the Whisky Bible thus: "...almost erotic in the way the rye and vanilla tease the senses...Impressively balanced all round: bourbon at its most sophisticated...93.5 points

In 1775, the Leestown settlement was established along the banks of the Kentucky River by Willis and Hancock Lee. Soon this became a well-known shipping port for tobacco, hemp and whiskey. The Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey pays tribute to the pioneering spirit of Hancock Lee.

Hancock's Reserve comes from Buffalo Trace's mash bill #2 and has a higher rye content, evident in the spiciness present. While not as well known as its cousins (Blanton's, Elmer T. Lee, Rock Hill Farms), this is another winning thoroughbred from the Buffalo Trace family.

Rich and spicy in the nose, sweet notes of vanilla and baking spices, honey and tropical fruits lay down a foundation that soon is echoed on the palate. Soft and viscous from the first sip, a touch of heat leads to a reiteration of the nose with flavor additions in the mouth: spicy and sweet, more honeyed tones and vanilla, cereal grains and wafer cookies, custard cream, baking spices, warm finish. Enjoy neat, with ice or spring water.
