Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond 6 Year
Heaven Hill // Kentucky, USA
Heaven Hill Bottled in Bond is not a marquee brand or even something that Heaven Hill spends much time talking about; it is simply one of their ole’ mainstays that has stayed the course over the years. In fact, there is not a ton of information available on this “old dog” but truth be known, is that it is a great everyday whiskey that pays homage to a time when proof of quality was on the label with the stamp explaining that it was “Bottled in Bond”. The stamp explained that the whiskey was the product of one distillery, produced in one distilling season, aged for a minimum of four years in a bonded warehouse under US government supervision and bottled at 100 proof, although this offering from Heaven Hill is aged for at least 6 years. Note: As of September 2018, this product has been discontinued.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.

"Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond 6 Year opens up with an aggressive nose of alcohol and corn, with delicious aromas of vanilla, salted caramel, roasted walnuts and toasted oak. The palate follows with caramel, and more toasted oak and then some interesting flavors of green apple, a touch of mint, more walnut, all rounding out with just a hint of cinnamon and clove. The finish is long and spicy with big wood notes, a bit of cinnamon, a touch of sweet toffee with lingering herbal tones. This is a fantastic everyday whiskey and a stellar value fit for great old fashioneds or shots amongst old friends."
