  • Excerpt: I’m looking forward to trying this again when a new seasonal batch comes out. That’s one of the fun, and sometimes frustrating, things about bonded products. They can, and do, change with the seasons.

  • Excerpt: I feel many will wonder what the fuss was about. Instead, what they will discover is a decent bourbon that is no longer worth getting overly excited about.

  • Excerpt: I admire the nod to tradition here. Bottled-in-bond might seem a bit dated and archaic, but it's honest and transparent, and I respect that; especially in an industry trending towards flashy non-age statement releases.

  • Publication: Drinkhacker
  • Excerpt: All told, it’s not exactly a masterwork, but it’s much better than many other bourbons on the market selling at higher prices than this. The bottled-in-bond abv doesn’t hurt; this is a whiskey that can stand up to being knocked around a bit by some booziness — and maybe even come out ahead in the process.

  • Excerpt: Overall, this is nice. It drinks quite a bit differently from the old 6yr BiB that was like $9 or something silly, in a good way. Much more complex, though fans of more oak and spice will be most drawn to this bottle.

  • Intro:

    A reintroduction of a once cult favorite KY only product, Heaven Hill 7yr Bottled in Bond replaces the old 6yr Bottled in Bond, complete with an extra year of aging and new packaging.

  • Nose:

    Baking spice, toffee, cocoa and a bit of vanilla bean. There’s a bit of oak here, quite a bit on the nose.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel. Some honey, pepper, a bit of dry oak. A little cream and cocoa. Not mega complex. For 50% the ethanol is very well priced. Dry and spicy on the back palate.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, but spicy and dry. Praline, brown sugar, pepper, and cinnamon.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is nice. It drinks quite a bit differently from the old 6yr BiB that was like $9 or something silly, in a good way. Much more complex, though fans of more oak and spice will be most drawn to this bottle.
