SKU #1034724 95 points Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark There are two noteworthy items regarding this whiskey. It’s the first barrel-proof whiskey released by Heaven Hill for the U.S. market. It’s also the first of what will be an ongoing series of releases under the "Parker’s Heritage Collection" label. This one is rich, with thick toffee, molasses, vanilla fudge, and Heath bar. It’s also well balanced, with underlying exotic spice, summer fruit, dusty corn, and tobacco to balance the sweeter notes. Long, soothing, finish. A nicely matured bourbon of character and pedigree. (Originally reviewed in Volume 16, No. 4) - John Hansell (Spring 2008) Inner quote mark (4/2008)

K&L Notes

This release of the first edition of Parker's Heritage Collection, a limited annual series of rare, aged American Whiskeys that pay tribute to 6th Generation Master Distiller Parker Beam. "The barrels I have selected for this series represent some of the finest and most diverse whiskeys I have produced in my 45 years as a Master Distiller," said Parker Beam. "I think they will pique the interest of many of today's whiskey aficionados." It is a cask-strength 1996 Bourbon that has mellowed over 48 Kentucky seasons on the fifth floor of Rickhouse Y in Bardstown. The bottling was drawn from a lot of 68 carefully selected barrels, which were dumped in three "very small batches" of 22, 22 and 24 barrels each.
