Is all the hype around Nevada H&C Distilling Co. real?

Nevada H&C Distilling Co. was founded in 2012 by Aaron Chepenik and Jonathan Hensleigh in Las Vega, Nevada
Smoke Wagon Small Batch Bourbon is made by combining the older age stock with younger barrels. Like the other two expressions, Smoke Wagon Small Batch Bourbon is non-chill filtered.
