I've heard that but all places I've gone to so far use all natural ingredients

You do have to check the bourbon,  and the cherry.  Otherwise indeed list worthy.

Point being?
חמץ שעבר עליו הפסח.
All whiskey is aged over many years, if it was under Jewish ownership at any point and not properly sold for pesach it would be forbidden.

Ask your LOR. R' Shlomo Miller holds bourbon is never a chametz problem as it must legally be over %50 corn thus being chametz dirabanan which will not be a problem. Heard from him personally.

Just curious...but why isn't there a problem with the other grains in the bourbon? Is it batul?

Bitul brov works for chametz sheavar es hapesach.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Not doubting your quote, but would be considered to be a chidush since there commonly is chametz (fermented barley) which is an integral part of the process it wouldn't be batel. That is the opinion on the AKO, which represents most North American Kashrus Organizations.  This seems to be clear in the Mishna Berura as well (442:27). http://www.crcweb.org/Whisky%20Alert%20with%20Q&A%20(Sep%202010).pdf
Is it possible the question posed to Rav Miller was from someone who already owned the questionable bourbon? That would be very different, because we are meikel on chametz sheaver alav hapesach derabanan in a case of hefsed. that would not apply to someone who was buying it already ipso facto.
It may also be true that the well intentioned person who did the research on this did the community a disservice since there isn't really a chiyuv to be mevarer the ownership. But once it's done it's done.

 R' Miller was saying about buying bourbon after Pesach (or all year round for that matter, since any Bourbon you will buy will be aver alav hapesach..)

If you have the opportunity to speak to him again, I'd be grateful if you could ask him why he disagrees with the Mishna Berura, or why he thinks this is different.

I just had Wild Turkey American Spirit 15 year. I am looking to buy a bottle but it is hard to find. Anyone know someone who can source it?

Thanks

There are 3 different versions at 3 different prices, the priciest at almost $150.
