Henry Mckenna Single Barrel Aged 10 Years Bourbon Whiskey 100 Proof Bottled in Bond 750 ML Hard to find!

In 1837, a young man from Ireland known for his remarkable whiskey-making skills, came to America with his family’s whiskey recipe that had been passed down for generations. Young Mr. McKenna settled in Kentucky and discovered the uniquely American drink known as Bourbon. McKenna instantly took a liking to Kentucky whiskey and set out to create a better Bourbon using his family’s recipe. To ensure the highest quality, he insisted that his Bourbon age in oak barrels before bottling. From this process, highly unusual for the time, emerged a remarkably smooth Bourbon boasting a distinctive character.

the only extra aged Bottled-in-Bond Single Barrel Bourbon, Henry McKenna Single Barrel satisfies those looking for a real whiskey with real history. The super-premium status is conveyed through new packaging. The front label contains handwritten authentication of the barrel number and the barreled on date. It also emphasizes the Bottled-In-Bond designation and the 10 year age statement.

Henry McKenna 10 Year Old Bottled-In-Bond Bourbon. This is possibly one of the most over looked and under rated whiskeys around and this particular barrel is sure to convert any nonbeliever. The nose alone on this wonderfully constructed bourbon should be more than enough to sell you. It opens up as pleasant as walking into a bakery at the crack of dawn. Fresh baked cinnamon buns and graham crackers play along baked apple tarts and vanilla laden American oak. The palate follows suit with vanilla, baking spice cinnamon, pastry notes, candied pecans, and caramelized apple. Although there is plenty of richness, this whiskey seems to dance across the palate with perfect balance

“Nose: There is a peppery pinch to the spicy nose, which fits perfectly with the dark brooding nature of the beast. The slightly singed toast acts as a perfect counter to the mint and orange rind. Really complex and tempting. Taste: Wow! Loads of everything. As you might expect from the nose. A deep, satin-smooth oak and burnt sugar backdrop allows the malt and rye to have a big say. Lots of vanilla, too. Finish: Here, as it dries, the corn comes into dominance. Some vanilla toffee, too. Comments: Magnificent stuff from Heaven Hill that really is worth hunting for.”
