Parker's Heritage Collection 10 Year Old Wheated Bourbon (Release #4)
Heaven Hill has released 4th release in Parker's Heritage Collection at barrel proof and non-chill filtered, which makes this a special bottling. As in past releases, the 10-year-old Wheated Bourbon edition is being offered in very limited quantities—52 total barrels were dumped for a national release that will only yield about 4,800 750ml bottles. The barrels used for this release were pulled from the fourth, sixth and seventh floors of our Rickhouse A, where they have rested since the summer of 2000.
Sweet youthful corn, King syrup, sweet grass, and just a touch of mint make up the nose. The whiskey is overproof hot, but yields oak spice, cornbread, vanilla, and more mint on end. Let's be smart and add some water. Much the same, without the heat; more enjoyable, the right balance.
