I was introduced to 1843 over 40 years ago and never found anything better even for a lot more money. I first had it neat and in other ways and always enjoyed its smooth and slightly sweet taste. At one time I tried I it in 86 proof but found it lacking the character of the 100 proof. I recently went on the Bourbon Tour in Kentucky and was surprised that no one in the distilleries visited had ever heard of 1843.

I found 1843 in O,Fallon, Missouri. It is the Best soutmash I have ever Sampled. KI have passed it on to all of y friends.
Got a bottle and left it at my father in laws. It's always down a few fingers when I come back for a visit. Superb bourbon for the money. I recommend you try some.

It's damn good. Best value around it has the quality of a premium whisky.

1843 is probably one of the best values for a "damn good" bourbon around. I don't know that you can find a better 100 proof for the money. If my typing is off, I've been "tasting" through the evening!

Wow, found some in Cape Giraudeau, MO and decided to give it a try as it was 3 bucks off. Wow, for the money, may be the best burbon I have every tasted....and I've tasted a lot.

I have been drinking 1843 bourbon for years and I love it, it has a great taste and is smooth.

Greatest bourbon ever bottled. Taste so smooth and unique that once you've experienced it you become a member of the fortunate individuals that dare to taste grreatness. Billboards were in the past posted stating how many miles you were from 1843. Living now 600 miles from 1843 those billboards meant a lot to me.

I normally drink Wild Turkey or Elijah Craig neet but agree that this is a great hi-gravity(when the earth meets your face) spirit for the incomptable price of $22 in a 1.75 l jug. The first taste of this was not a sweet a Wild Turkey but hit me somewhere between Irish whiskey and really good Cognac.

I would state that this is a decent bourbon, considering its price. Main criticism is that the taste is rather understates/muted, however it has grown on me.

Encountered 1843 while on a consulting gig for 3 mos. in New Orleans. Great stuff, smooth, powerful, with a clean bourbon taste.My client now sends me a half case every Christmas...great perk!

I live in St. Louis, the original home of David Nicholson 1843, and this has been my favorite bourbon for many years. It is wonderful neat, or in a Manhattan.

A fine whiskey. I am moving my way through the American Whiskeys and this one currently rates at the top of my list. Smooth and sweet, yet posessing a vulgar kick. 9/10!

I very much agree with GMC. I live in the American Midwest where this product is sold, and enjoy it regularly. It is bright and strong without being overwhelming. An fantastic value.

This is an excellent product which I can highly recommend to anyone who likes Bourbon. It makes an excellent mint julip.
