Member Ratings and Notes

The nose starts with light caramel and honey, Evan Williams like, and then develops nice oaky/leather notes. The palate comes on strong and oaky with a nice caramel in the back. The finish is strongly bitter.

 

The nose and palate on this bourbon are very strong and hearken back to the good old days of Parker's. The only flaw is in the finish which is too bitter. The good news is that even with the bitter finish, this is tasty stuff and the best Parker's Heritage release in years. The bad news is the price.

Great stuff. Nice balance of oak and honey-caramel with a tinge of spice. Nothing crazy flavor-wise but it hits the spot well. Best of recent Parker's releases.

 

Oh, Sku said the same thing. Great minds, I guess...
