So we consider ourselves "quasi" in the bourbon space, and like to have fun during our meetings. So what's more fun than having a bourbon battle?!
Today's "Battle of the Bourbons" are two premium Heaven Hill offerings. The contenders are:
1) Heaven Hill Private Stock - 2014 edition - 124 proof - 12 years old
2) William Heaven Hill - 103 proof - 16 years old
We had three participants for the taste test. Each participant rated nose, flavor and finish on a scale of 1-5, so with three participants, each category had a max score of 15 points. Below is a summary
|William Heaven Hill||Private Stock|
As you can see, the Heaven Hill handily beat the Private Stock. This is a little surprising, since both are high-end, premium bourbons, but the consensus on the Private Stock is that it was very "hot"....I guess that is not surprising considering the fact that it is 124 proof!
I hope you enjoyed the Battle of the Bourbons and we will be doing these on a weekly basis, so if you have some ideas / bourbons you would like us to test, shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see what we can do!
