Overall: I was already in love with the previous 10 Year Heavy Char Bourbon release, and then Heaven Hill goes and releases this one. This Wheat Whiskey is the 15th Edition from the Parker's Heritage Collection and comes from a total of 75 barrels. The barrels are charred for a little more than double the standard time to pick up more of the sugars in the oak. This process doesn't go unnoticed. Those charred flavors seem to "pop" with so much more emphasis. If anyone has had the chance to check out the new Heaven Hill Visitor's Center and bottle their own bourbon, the Bernheim Cask Strength is the closest comparison to this incredible release,
