Parker’s Heritage Collection 11 Years Old Heavy Char Wheat Whiskey
Following in the footsteps of the last two releases, the 15th edition of the Parker's Heritage Collection continues to explore the interaction of the barrel char level with varying mashbills in the Heaven Hill portfolio. Consisting of only 75 barrels - each of which was charred for one minute and 30 seconds (Level 5), as opposed to our traditional 40 seconds (Level 3) - these heavy char barrels were filled with our wheat whiskey mashbill and aged on the 6th floor of Rickhouse Y for 11 years. At bottling, the liquid was cut to 122 proof and non-chill filtered to maintain the texture, viscocity and depth of flavor on the palate. During the over 44 seasons spent in the barrel, the interaction of the liquid with the heavy char intensified the flavors found in our original wheat whiskey mashbill, conveying a soft and rich sweetness, filled with hints of molasses and butterscotch, which results in a truly unique whiskey experience.
