While moving things through our whiskey cabinet this past weekend I found this Henry McKenna 10 Years Bottled-In-Bond. I was pleasantly surprised since, 1. I had no idea we owned a bottle and 2. I have not written about this brand before.
If you aren’t familiar with Bottled-In-Bond that simply means it’s been aged and bottled according to the legal regulations according to the US standards set in the Bottled-In-Bond Act of 1897. This Heaven Hill Distillery brand is one of the longest aged Bottled-In-Bond whiskey available today.
Nose: vanilla, oak and caramel
Palate: oak, spices, and honey
Finish: lightly sweet and spiced
Barrel No: 11042; Barreled on 06-21-2011
This is good whiskey! It’s smooth, filled with spices with just the right amount of sweetness. The balance in this whiskey is a bit unreal as it’s simply done to perfection. This is truly what whiskey should taste like. I have no complaints and am so happy to find this little gem in our collection. Something tells me my husband went hunting and simply didn’t tell me. But let’s be real, I’m not mad about it.
