Excerpt: Notes of graham cracker, dark fleshy fruit (ripe grape, blackberry brandy), light toffee, maple syrup on pancakes, and creamy vanilla. Great balance, distinctive, and perilously drinkable for 100 proof.
Excerpt: This is a huge (and very dark colored) Bourbon, and the Cognac comes through clearly, giving this Bourbon a lot more sweetness than most. But at the same time, it’s richly complex, with raisin, cinnamon, and smoldering wood notes.

This is another release in the Parkers Heritage Collection and it is a bourbon, finished in cognac barrels that is ten years old and bottled at 50% ABV.
Vanilla, caramel, rich oak. Earthy tobacco, sweet musty notes. Stewed fruits, a faint bit of allspice and really robust cocoa.
Thick and rich mouthfeel, no real heat despite the slightly elevated proof. Vanilla, nougat, faintly stewed fruits and rich rich caramel. This is perhaps the richest bourbon that I have had, and the stewed fruits + nougat element adds massive character.
Long, rich, loaded with earthy tobacco, sweet caramel and vanilla, rich nougat and payday bar an the onset of some delicious stewed fruits.
This is one of the best bourbons that I have had - it is diverse and complex, rich and full, and everything that I wish a bourbon could be. Sigh.
