This bourbon is only available at the You Do Bourbon Experience at the Heaven Hill Bourbon Experience, in Bardstown, Kentucky. It is made from Heaven Hill’s standard bourbon mash bill (78% corn, 10% rye, 12% malted barley), aged at least 8 years on the 6th floor of their warehouses, and is a small batch of 10 barrels. It’s bottled at barrel proof.
The flavors are rich and savory; the mouthfeel full and the finish long. There are many similarities to Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, but the weird thing is this one tastes the same age or older, even though its age statement is 4 years younger. Now it could have older barrels in it; that we don’t know. This one also has a more “pastry” overtone to it.
