Henry McKenna K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #1115 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 #1115 is perhaps just a bit rounder on the palate with a creamer, tropical note before the spice comes back big on the finish. As fewer and fewer whiskey labels continue to provide specifics about maturity and provenence, 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!
