Heaven Hill Distillery 7 Year Bottled-in-Bond is a whiskey that comes with a bit of a background. The distillery itself was co-founded by the Shapira Brothers in 1935 in Bardstown, KY. The family owned a small chain of department stores throughout central Kentucky and were approached to invest in the distillery, which they had no experience but saw potential in the industry. The family ended up purchasing the distillery outright from their partner for $40,000 in the late 1930s (roughly $750,000 in 2020 dollars).
The 7-year Bottled-in-Bond is a new offering from Heaven Hill, which is known for producing Henry McKenna, Elijah Craig, and Old Fitzgerald. Their 6-year bottled-in-bond bourbon was a cult favorite, influenced by the fact that it was only distributed it in the state of Kentucky. The six-year was discontinued and Heaven Hill decided to release a 7-year age stated version in 2019.
The mashbill remained the same: 78% corn, 10% rye and 12% malted Barley. Vanilla, honey, oak spice, and caramel notes on the nose and palate. Texture is smooth, not so oily, where subtle rye spice notes become apparent. A super pleasant sipper.
