Parker's Heritage Collection 3rd Release "Golden Annivesary" Kentucky Straight Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1054838 97 points Whisky Advocate

 This bottling celebrates master distiller Parker Beam's 50 years of service by including whiskey from each of the past five decades. This is a fabulous whiskey: seamless and incredibly complex, with an impeccable marriage of youth and maturity. It’s also very even-keeled throughout -- quite different than last year’s equally impressive PHC, a 27 year old, whose personality was more like an exhilarating old wooden rollercoaster ride (and also brandished more oak). Look for candied citrus, nectarine, blueberry, and sultana anchored by a nougat center, laced with honeyed vanilla and orange creamsicle. There’s a dusting of cocoa powder, brittle mint, and cinnamon, too. Tobacco leaves, polished leather, and teasing bourbon barrel char round out the palate, emerging more prominently towards a warming finish. A classic! (John Hansell, Fall 2009)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

 Extremely well balanced--it's complex but no single element stands out. Flavors are of caramel, burnt orange peel, toatiness and oak. Medium body, silky and long finish, with the right amount of bite, lingering aniseed note. Hightly versatile. (KN)  (9/2010)

K&L Notes

2009 American Whiskey of the year - Malt Advocate. John Hansell says "This is a fabulous whiskey; seamless, incredibly complex, with an impeccable marriage of youth and maturity. It’s also very even-keeled throughout quite different than last year’s equally impressive Parker’s Heritage Collection bottling, a 27 year old, whose personality was more like an exhilarating old wooden rollercoaster ride (and also brandished more oak). The Golden Anniversary bottling shows candied citrus, nectarine, blueberry, and sultana anchored by a nougat center and laced with honeyed vanilla and orange creamsicle. There’s a dusting of cocoa powder, brittle mint, and cinnamon, too! Tobacco leaves, polished leather, and teasing bourbon barrel char round out the palate, emerging more prominently toward its warming finish. This is a classic bourbon that’s very complex, yet very drinkable." This unbelievable whiskey is composite of bourbons from throughout Parker Beam's legendary career, that's 50 years of bourbon in one bottle, so don't miss it. (David Girard)
