This bottle is discontinued as Heaven Hill opted to release a premium 7-year line for much more than this former bottom shelf $15 gem. I’ve never tasted the new bottle.
Nose: a very sweet almost cedar-like wood dominates the nose. It’s one of the most unique noses in bourbon I’ve tried the last five years.
Taste: sweet toffee with rich & oily light peppermint notes. A very dessert-like whiskey.
Finish: medium with little bite and a little more sweet fruits and candy.
Until this was yanked from the shelves this was my favorite bottom shelf whiskey ever. It’s a shame that it’s gone for now, but demand on HH’s bourbon stocks has been insane the last decade. It’s one of the sweetest bourbons I’ve ever tasted if that’s your thing. If, for some reason, you come across a dusty white label Heaven Hill 6-year *bonded* bourbon and it’s not insanely priced, buy!!
Nose is creamy vanilla and caramel, corn, robust oak, char. All of that plus vanilla and cocoa on the tongue accompanied by an assertive and satisfying burn. This bottle will never be beaten at its price point and I will be very sad when I go through my last one.
100 proof - a 6 year old Bottled in Bond. Discontinued by Heaven Hill back around the Summer of 2018. “Replaced” by a 7 year BIB that’s much more expensive.
N: Oranges, pralines, seasoned oak, cinnamon rolls, allspice.
P: Oranges and pralines, candy corn, marshmallows, cinnamon, licorice.
F: Oranges and pralines die off and are replaced by barrel char.
Dominated by oranges and pralines with some cinnamon on the side. This is a decent bourbon, and it’s fantastic if you consider the price. You used to see this for about $10 a bottle in Kentucky until it was discontinued. You used to see this all over Kentucky until it was discontinued back 2018. This is not complicated at all. It has some nice sweet candied notes balanced with some citrus (oranges). It has the praline thing going on with it as well, like some other lower end Heaven Hill products (i.e. JW Dant Bonded). The finish is the least appealing aspect with this - short and tannic. All in all, this WAS one of the best bourbon values around.
