Heaven Hill Announces Latest Heritage Collection Release - 20-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey

Heaven Hill has announced the 2023 release of the Heaven Hill Heritage Collection. This is a 20-year-old Corn Whiskey. Bottled without chill filtering bottled at 115 proof (57.5% alcohool) and is made with their traditional corn mashbill of 80% corn, 8% rye and 12% malted barley.

Master Distiller Conor O’Driscoll says:
The Heaven Hill Heritage Collection reflects the true craftsmanship, patience and consistency which are hallmarks of Heaven Hill’s whiskey making traditions. The ability to offer consumers an ultra-aged corn whiskey is a true testament to the forward-thinking innovation the company has practiced for decades and continues to practice to this day.

This release is made up of 110 barrels produced in October 2002. The barrels were pulled from the third floor of rickhouse 1K, one of the brick rickhouses located in their Bernheim Distillery campus in Louisville, Kentucky. No suggested price was provided and the release will be available nationally in a limited release. It contains the following tasting notes:

Nose: Toasted corn and oak spices
Taste: Aged oak and walnuts
Finish: Wood spices with hints of corn sweetness

My Take

While no price was provided, these bottles are selling for north of $1400 online, which puts this out of reach of 99.9% of consumers. If this does make it to Ohio, I would expect to see it in one of the high-end lotteries.
