Review #93 | /r/Bourbon Review #53 – Heaven Hill 6yr Bottled in Bond
The Schtick: This is an age stated, bottled in bond, value bourbon from Heaven Hill.
Distiller: Heaven Hill
Bottler: Heaven Hill
ABV: 50% ABV
Age: 6 Years
Source: Bottle, Purchased
Nose: Really sweet, lots of caramel, corn, vanilla, grain and some healthy syrupy sweetness.
Taste: The sweetness continues. Kind of thin mouthfeel but the sweet cream, vanilla and syrupy sugar balance it out.
Finish: Short but still oddly complex. While it’s short, it’s not harsh or young feeling. The vanilla and caramel are there and it’s delicious.
Overall: This is a great value and a great contender in the Bottled in Bond category. It has good age and the palate reflects that. Very well done.
