Pappy Van Winkle 15 Year 2019 Release
Expressly produced according to the exclusive Van Winkle family wheated-recipe and specially selected from barrels in the heart of the aging warehouses, this bourbon remained undisturbed for 15 years to age in deep-charred heavy oak untouched by human hands, unhurried by time.
An elegant and sweet aroma with caramel corn and vanilla. Features big flavor of leather, oak and complex fruitiness. Finishes smooth with notes of spice and oak tannins.

George T. Stagg 2019 Release
This extremely hearty whiskey ages in new charred oak barrels for no less than 15 years. Straight out of the barrel, uncut and unfiltered, the taste is powerful, flavorful and intense. Open it up with a few drops of water, sit back and ponder the wonders of the universe.
Lush toffee sweetness and dark chocolate with hints of vanilla, fudge, nougat and molasses. Underlying notes of dates, tobacco, dark berries, spearmint and a hint of coffee round out the palate.

Parker’s Heritage Collection 2019 Release
The first ever Rye Whiskey of the Parker’s Heritage Collection, the 13th edition consists of 75 specialty barrels that were charred for a full minute and a half, as opposed to our traditional 40 seconds. These “Level 5” barrels were aged for 8 years, 9 months on the seventh floor of Rickhouse Y. There, the heavier char allowed the whiskey to penetrate further into the barrel, extracting deep notes of spice and wood, and resulting in an elevation of the spicy, distinctive character of our traditional Rye Whiskey mashbill. It is bottled without chill filtration at 105 proof.
Color: Deep copper
Nose: Chocolate & smoke
Taste: Honey sweetness and big spices; dry tannins accentuate the rye character, especially the pepper notes
Finish: Very long & warm. Cloves & cinnamon linger
William Heavenhill 7th Edition
This seventh edition of William Heavenhill is an extremely limited and unique offering. It has been aged for 12 years on the 10th floor of Rickhouse 1K, a brick warehouse located at the historic Bernheim distillery. Comprised of only 35 barrels, this small batch results in a finely balanced Bourbon with a smooth finish. The bourbon has been bottled at barrel proof and non-chill filtered.
