About Parker’s Heritage Collection 16th Edition Double Barreled Blend Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Heaven Hill releases a new entry in their Heritage Collection once per year, every fall. Released in 2022, this expression is the 16th whiskey in the series that aims to explore and innovate. It’s a blend of 13-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon (67% of the blend) that was double-barreled for 4 weeks before being blended with a 15-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon (33%). The younger bourbon was distilled in 2008 and matured in Rickhouse Q, then transferred into new American oak casks (level 3 char) for another 4 weeks. The 15-year-old bourbon was distilled in 2007 in Rickhouse II. Both feature the same mash bill of 78% corn, 10% rye, and 12% malted barley. The final blend was bottled uncut and non-chill filtered at 132.2 proof, preserving the complex aromas and flavors of oak and spice. It’s “a masterful pairing of two uniquely aged products that create the perfect balance of flavors which, we believe, honor the past and are a fitting tribute to Parker and his legacy,” said Vice President Susan Wahl at the time of release.

About Parker’s Heritage Collection
The Parker’s Heritage collection of small batch bourbons is a series of rare, limited-edition bourbons that are crafted in tribute to Master Distiller Parker Beam and his five decades of experience distilling whiskey. Each year, Parker Beam and Heaven Hill select a special expression of whiskey to release under the Parker’s Heritage Collection label.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA.
It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
