Heaven Hill Heritage Collection (2023)Style: Corn whiskeyOrigin: KentuckyAge: 20 year oldABV: 57.5% Release: March 2023Availability: Limited
Need to know: The second release in Heaven Hill’s Heritage Collection features Heaven Hill’s corn whiskey mashbill of 80% corn, 12% malted barley, and 8% rye. The whiskey comes from 110 barrels originally distilled in October 2002, all of which have been aging on the third floor of Rickhouse 1K for the past 20 years. As with the debut Heritage Collection whiskey, this straight corn expression is packaged in a special box and labeled with details about production, including warehouse site, production date, mashbill, and more.
Whisky Advocate says: Heaven Hill has nearly two million barrels aging at its six warehouse sites across Nelson and Jefferson Counties; the Heritage Collection highlights the most mature stocks within these warehouses. While the news of this whiskey is out now, it won’t actually begin shipping until March, as the collection is technically an annual spring release. The inaugural Heritage Collection whiskey was a 17 year old barrel proof bourbon that blended together 17, 19, and 20 year old whiskeys, which, unlike the most recent release, aged at a variety of Heaven Hill’s rickhouses.
