Heaven Hill Announces Heritage Collection 17-Year-Old Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Fresh off refusing to pay their workers a fair living wage after working through a global pandemic, Heaven Hill has announced the Heaven Hill Heritage Collection. The first release in this collection is a 17-Year-Old Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. The Heritage Collection will be released each Spring and feature some of their oldest inventory of aging whiskey.

Max L. Shapira, Heaven Hill president says:
Over many years, we have been quietly aging some exquisite whiskeys to be introduced under a new collection within our Heaven Hill Distillery portfolio. Of our 1.9 million barrels resting across six rickhouse sites, our master craftspeople have kept watchful eyes on this limited stock of special barrels and we are finally ready to release the first edition.

The first edition features the Heaven Hill bourbon mashbill comprised of 78% corn, 10% rye, and 12% malted barley, and bottled at a barrel proof of 118.2. Each bottle will be accompanied by a premium box in Heaven Hill blue with the double-H insignia stamped in gold to signify Heaven Hill. No price or state availability was provided. No price information was provided. 

My Take

I wouldn't look to find this in Ohio unless it shows up on one of the State lotteries. I would also expect this to have a very high price tag... most likely in the thousands. While it's cool to have a 17 year bourbon, it's something that the vast vast majority of us will ever experience.
