Heaven Hill Heritage Collection 17 year old Barrel Proof, 59.1%

Price: $275 Issue: Summer 2022 Reviewer: David Fleming




A bountiful nose offers aromas of buttered pancakes, fresh cornbread, confectionery powder, vanilla frosted lemon cake, and grape jelly, all promising great things. Smooth and well-spiced on a palate of sweet figs, fiery spice, sassafras, licorice, dark brown sugar, and mature oak. A long finish offers surprisingly fresh notes of lemon and red berry, along with lively spice. Rich and profound, a well-aged bourbon to compete with the best aged whiskies of the world.Collectible
