Henry McKenna K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #1114 Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
When you're talking about ten year old, single barrel, 100 proof Bourbon from Heaven Hill, it's really tough to go wrong. That's why when we tasted through casks in the Bernheim warehouse this past October, we took pretty much everything we could. We've got two new barrels in stock right now (#1114 & #1115) and they're almost identical in flavor having been aged in the same part of the warehouse together. Both have a creaminess and a potent herbaceousness from the rye content. Both finish with lovely baking spices and hints of charred oak. The #1114 has just a bit more pepper on the back end with another dash of rye for good measure. As fewer and fewer whiskey labels continue to provide specifics about maturity and provenance, you can count on Henry McKenna for quality, value, and transparency. You know it's from a single barrel, you know it's from Heaven Hill, and you know it's ten years old. And since it was selected by us here at K&L, you know it's good, too!
