Parkers Heritage Collection Promise of Hope Bourbon

Parker’s Heritage Collection Promise of Hope Bourbon Review

  • by

Are you familiar with the Parker’s Heritage Collection from Heaven Hill? According to their website: “Each year as part of the Parker’s Heritage Collection, we select a special whiskey to be released in the name of our late Master Distiller Parker Beam. The barrels selected for this series include Bourbon, Rye, and Wheat Whiskeys, among others, and are some of the finest and most diverse American Whiskeys ever produced. They are a fitting tribute to the expertise of Parker Beam.” Parker Beam suffered from ALS, and currently, a portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold go to the ALS Association. I believe the donations began with this release, Parker’s Heritage Collection Promise of Hope Bourbon.

Casey Jones Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Casey Jones Kentucky Straight Bourbon Review

  • by

Casey Jones Distillery released their first Kentucky Straight Bourbon late November 2020. They use a very unique square pot still also known as a “square still” or “coffin still” to produce their bourbon (and moonshine). In addition, Casey Jones uses the moonshiner’s technique of mashing and fermenting all in the same tub. Now that’s efficiency!

The Whisky Drop by Maker’s Mark Distillery

  • by

The Whisky Drop is a new service from Maker’s Mark Distillery. Taking advantage of Kentucky’s recently passed House Bill 415, which allows the direct shipping of alcohol from producers directly to consumers, Maker’s Mark launched this program early this year. There is a shipment every season and each contains two bottles of bourbon.

Rare Perfection 12 Year Old Bourbon from Preservation Distillery

Rare Perfection 12 Year Old Bourbon Review

  • by

So, like all of the Rare Perfection whiskeys from Preservation Distillery, this Rare Perfection 12 Year Old Bourbon is also a mystery. We know it is from Kentucky and is 12 years old. Enigmatically, it doesn’t declare itself a Straight Bourbon, although I guess that is implied by the age. And yes, the wording of the age is a bit different as well: YR 12 OLD.

Heaven Hill Select Stock Bourbon Finished in Toasted Barrels (2021 Release)

Select Stock Bourbon Finished in Toasted Oak Barrels Review (2021)

  • by

Are you familiar with Heaven Hill’s Select Stock whiskeys? I think that they are not particularly well known. That may be because they are limited releases that generally come out yearly, and for the most part, are sold only at the distillery. Every year they are something unique. Last year was the Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Used Coffee Barrels. This year is Heaven Hill Select Stock Bourbon Whiskey Finished in New Toasted Oak Barrels. I have to say, I am partial to this year’s…

So, what’s the story with the Ezra Brooks 99 Proof Bourbon? According to the Ezra Brooks website: “Bottled at an elevated 99 proof for an enhanced flavor profile, this pure, oak-barrel-aged Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is charcoal filtered for a smooth, mellow finish and features a spicy, ryed bourbon mash bill.”

Heaven Hill 6 Year Old Bourbon - Green Label

Heaven Hill 6 Year Old Bourbon “Green Label” Review

  • by

The Heaven Hill 6 Year Old Bourbon (Green Label) is one of those “Kentucky Only” bourbons that has a bit of a cult following, at least in some part due to the fact that it is only available in Kentucky. Interestingly, none of Heaven Hill’s KY only bourbons appear on their website. That’s a good thing, because these bourbons have been “our little secret”, but it is pretty clear that secret has gotten out.
