From The Heaven Hill Parker’s Heritage Collection we bring you its eight edition, quite a special one, we might say. Because… the barrels used for the 2014 offering were from the very first run of what later would become Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey. That is kind of historically significant because these barrels contained the first widely available wheat based whiskey on the market. The 2014 Parker’s Heritage is divided in to 2 different batches. The first one – this one – came out at 63.7% ABV and the second came out at 63.4 percent.
The barrels have been stored at the top of the warehouse Y at the Heaven Hill site for 13 years. And you know: this is where the magic happens when it comes to big fluctuations of temperature, so the barrels expand and contract more often and to a greater degree.
So, there you go: batch 1 Bernheim, aged at the top of a Heaven Hill warehouse.
