The 9th edition of Parker’s Heritage Collection hit the Heaven Hill gift shops in Louisville and Bardstown today. This is an 8 year old whiskey, bottled at 108 proof, and is made from 65% Malt and 35% corn, making this a Malt Whiskey.
This runs $130 plus tax at the gift shops, so if malt whiskey isn’t you thing, this should be a try-before-buy whiskey. It should be priced near $100-115 in liquor stores initially once it hits shelves. That extra $30 dollars gets you a snazzy leather gift bag, though. Totally worth it (/sarcasm).
We have a bottle, and will be releasing our review soon, but we’d love to hear feedback from anyone who has tried it, particularly Scotch Lovers.
