Many people confuse bourbon, scotch and whiskey. The fact of the matter is, bourbon and scotch are types of whiskey, each named for the region they’re from. Bourbon comes from a place called Bourbon, Kentucky, but unlike Champagne, it can be produced outside of this region and still be called bourbon. Known for its slightly sweeter and smoother taste, Bourbon has started becoming a lot more popular lately.
If you have the means, and a taste for bourbon, you may want to try the most expensive bourbon in the world. A 750ML bottle of 16 year old A. H. Hirsch Reserve will cost you about $300. This smooth whiskey was distilled at Michter’s Distillery in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania in 1974 and left to mature until it was bottled in 1990. This is one of the few remaining examples of whiskeys brewed in the Kentucky pot-still tradition.
