Parker's Heritage Collection 27 Year Old Small Batch Bourbon (Release #2)
One of the most astonishing bourbons you'll ever try. One of the most extraordinary bourbons you'll ever try. It was made in memory of Parker Beam - a member of the Beam family who had been in the industry for over 50 years. John Hansell even went so far as to award this stunning 27-year-old bourbon 95 points!
This was made in memory of Parker Beam. Very well balanced and mellow on the nose and palate. Sweet notes of mature dark rum, toffee, nougat and candy corn dovetail with dried apricot, golden raisin, hot cinnamon, soft mint tea, and vanilla. Polished leather and tobacco leaves on a long, contemplative finish. It is what an ultra-mature bourbon should taste like: all the depth and complexity that comes with this much aging without all the excessive oak. The wood is there, but it never crosses the line.
