Founded in 1935 after the repeal of Prohibition, Heaven Hill is the nation’s largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits products. Based in Bardstown, Kentucky, it is the second largest holder of Bourbon whiskey in the world. The roots of history and the art of making America’s true native spirit run deep at Heaven Hill. In the open-rick warehouses where the world’s finest Bourbon ages in charred white oak, you can almost feel the presence of legends like William Heavenhill, the company’s namesake, and Kentucky’s Bourbon pioneers Evan Williams and the Rev. Elijah Craig.
Deep color, medium-to-heavy feel. Strong, sweet fragrance with wood and spice tones. Butterscotch candy flavors, so strong I almost hear cellophane unwrapping, are echoed by some oak, caramel and vanilla. Smooth, not too much alcohol fire. Mellow, long finish with a touch of herbal and anise notes.
