Parkers Heritage Malt Whiskey 8 Year


The Parker’s Heritage Malt Whiskey is 65% malted barley and 35% corn, thus it doesn’t qualify to be labeled as a bourbon.  The product is aged for 8 years a bottled without chill filtration at a bold 54% abv.

The nose has a funky, charred oak blast with some subtle, sweet vanilla notes.  The taste is bold, sweet vanilla and spicy cinnamon.  The finish is woody, apple with some astringent alcohol notes.

I don’t have a lot of additional reference points around Kentucky Malt Whiskey but the flavors were funkier and muddier that I expected.
