So here we have the David Nicholson Reserve, a high-rye bourbon that’s purportedly and extra-aged product from the David Nicholson lineup to expand upon their 1843 expression. In looking at the David Nicholson website we see some of the backstory on the 1843:
In the private back room of a grocery store on North 6th Street in St. Louis, Missouri, unbeknownst to its forefather, a legacy was born. The store’s owner, David Nicholson, created the famed ‘43’ bourbon recipe. Little did he know that his recipe would be passed on and passed down, remaining unaltered for almost two centuries.
Still possessing the outstanding character for which it earned its original popularity in 1843, the David Nicholson legacy lives on unchanged, unfettered, and unmatched.
It’s no secret that both the 1843 and Reserve are expressions that are sourced, so I think we’re in for some familiar flavors here. If you checked out the Daviess County livestream I did with Jay (from t8ke.review) where we dug into the relaunched Daviess County Bourbon from Lux Row you’re already familiar with where this is sourced. Enough about that, let’s dig in!
