Heaven Hill Distillery - Distilled & Bottled in Bardstown, Kentucky

110 Proof

Poured Neat in a Glencairn


Color: Amber


Nose: Caramel apples, allspice, nutmeg and oak


Palate: Vanilla, cherries (reminds me of a Cherry Vanilla Coke), some cinnamon and pepper spice.


Finish: Medium linger with a warm coating


Overall: Believe it or not, this is my first time diving into Pikesville. I've had it on my shelf for far too long and today was the day. Based on my fandom of Heaven Hill, I had no doubts this would be a solid pour. I wasn't expecting the flavors I picked up though. The heavy cherry influence is very welcomed and very much enjoyed. The finish is a perfect warm hug that sticks around for just the right amount of time.
