Another innovative and delicious release of finished Bourbon in the Parker’s Heritage Collection.
Heaven Hill Distillers is unique. They are one of the oldest and largest Bourbon distillers in the world, they have the second largest standing inventory of aging Bourbon, and they have grown to become the seventh largest supplier of spirits in the US. BUT … they are still family owned. In fact, they are the only family-owned production house left in Kentucky. God bless the Shapira family! The spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill includes Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, and their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more.
The “Parker’s Heritage Collection” is a limited edition series from Heaven Hill. Each year they select a special Bourbon to honor the legendary Heaven Hill Whiskey Master Parker Beam. Since each year is a hand-selected release, the proof, age, and flavor profile varies each year. This year’s release — Parker’s Heritage Collection 12th Edition Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey — is a delicious seven-year-old Bourbon from the upper floors of Rickhouse Q, and finished for four months in French Orange Curaçao Liqueur and bottled at nearly cask strength of 55% ABV.
Just think about that for a moment. We’ve never seen — or tasted — anything like it, and we say that in all the best possible ways.

Smartass corner:
Curaçao Liqueur is a sweetened Liqueur infused with Laraha (bitter) orange zest. It gets its name from the island where the Laraha oranges are grown in the Caribbean.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.

Ratings & Reviews
Parker’s Heritage Collection Barrel Finished Bourbon - Orange Curaçao Barrels (H29881243) 55%ABV / 110 Proof The nose leads with a mild floral and cherry caramel undertone, while fresh orange curaçao barrel and mint leaves simultaneously peek through. There is minimal spice present and is extremely clean, showcasing a fresh spring like aroma. Marzipan and charred oak begin on the palate shortly followed by honey lemon drops. Mild pepper and rye dominate the mid palate before vanilla butterscotch chips fade on the backend. The oak filled finish is nicely married with the bitter sweetness of a smoked orange peel and spicy ground cinnamon that compliments each other well. Mouthfeel is slightly oily and medium to long finish.
Not my favorite Parker's because of the orange, but it's definitely not sweet like orange curacao.
The orange is WAY too overpowering.
It’s not bad but you need to know going into this whether you like orange curaçao or not. Because it’s unmistakable when you taste it. It’s not my favorite PHC bottling but I’m glad I tried it.
