Parker's Heritage Collection 10 year Wheated Mashbill Cask Strength Batch #1 Bourbon (750ml)
Another exceptional release from legendary master distiller Parker Beam at Heaven Hill. This year he's selected a 10 year wheated bourbon and bottled it at barrel proof. This comes from the Bernheim distillery which Heaven Hill acquired in 1999. This is the first of two batchs and comes in at a hefty 63.9%. Less than 5,000 bottles will be bottled. "Soft, sweet, and very smooth. Richly textured layers of caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, nougat, maple syrup, and rhum agricole. Bramble, date, cinnamon, subtle cocoa and nutmeg add complexity. Clean, polished and perilously drinkable. A delicious wheated bourbon! Not quite the complexity of the classic 2009 William Larue Weller, but getting close." 93 points - Malt Advocate 3 Bottles Found mixed in with Batch #2. These are the last of the Batch #1 so don't wait if you'd like to compare them.
