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.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.

At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
