Dylan,
Hits the mark for a lower end whiskey but wish it had less of a burn. Solid for the price but wouldn't pay more than $20.

Craig,
Good, basic bourbon. Not as good as the 10 year old version, but for the price it is a nice sipper. Little bite on the start with fair amounts of flavor and a nice finish. Would definitely purchase again, especially for the price.
 
MATTHEW
MATTHEW,
Not my favorite. Too much of a corn flavor
 
Frank
Frank,
Your basic solid Ky bourbon. A great representation of Kentucky’s bourbon choices.

Chris,
Meh, not my fav. Ordered because it had such great rating. To me, it was harsh. It did smooth out, but first few sips were rough. It has a nice flavor though, just wish it was more smooth.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
A sweet-tasting, low proof, simple bourbon. When you're in the mood for something cheap and uncomplicated or looking for a mixing whiskey this'll do just fine. This bourbon has it's place and isn't pretending to be somthing else. Worth a try I say.

Candy corn and vanilla with a light oak spice. Palate is also joined by a nuttiness and some orange zest. Creamy mouthfeel with cinnamon on the finish. Heaven Hill distillery was founded in 1935, immediately after Prohibition ended in the United States in 1933, after a group of investors, including the famous Joseph L. Beam, decided to be ready for the rebounding market. Heaven Hill is located on a massive estate boasting 22 multi-story rick-houses across hundreds of acres of land. Now known as the "Heaven Hill Bernheim Distillery" they have the second-largest inventory of Bourbon Whiskey in the world. It is also the only remaining large-scale family-owned distillery in Kentucky. In 1837, Henry McKenna emigrated from Ireland to the United States. After spending nearly two decades as a farmer in Kentucky, McKenna founded an eponymous distillery in 1855. At the time, McKenna focused on the production of wheat whiskey (the only crop he was harvesting at the time) and was able to distill enough whiskey to fill one barrel each day. As word of McKenna's high-quality whiskey spread, McKenna was able to triple his distillation capacity and began experimenting with the production of bourbon. Following his death in 1893, McKenna's three sons — Daniel, Stafford and, James — began operating the business. The 80-proof Henry Mckenna Bourbon Whiskey honors the rich family tradition and pioneering spirit of Henry McKenna, one of the founding fathers of bourbon. He was among the first to age his whiskey in new, charred American oak barrels. Aged for a minimum of 4 years, it has a mash bill of 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% barley and is bottled at 80 proof.

Pretty good.
 
Noah
Noah,
Nothing special going on here. It's a very standard bourbon with all the expected flavors. Very affordable daily drinker, but not special. I think there's better bourbon even around $20.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Excellent bourbon for the price. Probably best bottle of liquor below $15 I've ever had
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Sweet start and balanced sip with a smokey finish. Very enjoyable scotch.
