The bottle does not carry a barrel number or age statement but Hancock's Reserve is believed to be around 8 years old.

Made using Buffalo Trace's "Rye Mash #2" recipe, Hancock's President's Reserve was originally introduced by Master Distiller Emeritus who worked for more than 50 years at the distillery.
