From Breaking Bourbon: "Heavy Char Wheat Whiskey has that “wow” factor, restoring confidence in the quality of the annual Parker’s Heritage Collection and should move to the top of every whiskey enthusiasts’ fall whiskey wish list.
. . . This year’s release represents the 15th edition of Parker’s Heritage Collection. According to the company website, “[this edition] features the same mashbill as Bernheim Wheat Whiskey, but aged in specialty barrels that were charred for 90 seconds, as opposed to our traditional 40 seconds.” A total of 75 barrels make up this release, all of which were aged on the sixth floor of Rickhouse Y and then bottled without chill filtration.
This is the third sequential heavy char whiskey released as part of the Collection, following 2020’s Heavy Char Bourbon and 2019’s Heavy Char Rye. It is also the second wheat whiskey released as part of the Collection, the first being 2014’s Original Batch Cask Strength Wheat Whiskey.
Once again like all releases starting with 2013’s Promise of Hope, Heaven Hill will contribute a portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold to the ALS Association in honor of the late Heaven Hill Master Distiller Parker Beam. Read more about the background in the company press release."
