Henry McKenna 10 Year Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Heaven Hill // Kentucky, USA
Made by Heaven Hill Distillery, this Henry McKenna bottling is a Bottled-In-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Aged 10 years, this release is also a single barrel release with each bottle bearing both the bottling date and the barrel number. Single barrel whiskeys are unique bottlings so your mileage may vary, but you'll generally be sipping a rye-drinker's bourbon. Big, bold, spicy and a great choice for an Old Fashioned--go easy on the sugar, amp up the bitters a bit and garnish with a single orange peel.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Heavy alcohol on the nose which balances out nicely on the palate. Distinct spicy aromas followed closely by mint, orange peel and Nilla Wafers. On first taste, you get classic bourbon flavors of caramel, toffee and vanilla, then the rye kicks in with menthol, wood spices and citrus. Bone dry with a long finish and oh-so-American charcoal undertones, this is the George Carlin of the bourbon world. It takes a long time to make its point, but is certainly worth the ride getting there. "
