In 2019, Heaven Hill discontinued their 6 year old Bottled in Bond bourbon and replaced it with Heaven Hill 7 Year Bottled in Bond Bourbon, which I am reviewing here. While I think the 6 year old was only sold in Kentucky, the 7 year has slightly broader distribution across chunks of the US, but for some reason is not sold in the Mid-Atlantic where I live. Oh well.
In context with Heaven Hill’s other bourbons, this 7 year old bottled in bond bourbon at $40-50 is priced higher than Elijah Craig Small Batch and around the same as Henry McKenna 10 Year Single Barrel Bottled in Bond. The 7 year also has a lot in common with Evan Williams Bottled in Bond because of the bottled in bond designation. You can read more about what bottled in bond means here. In terms of age, the Heaven Hill 7 year is older than Evan Williams Bottled in Bond (probably 4 years old) but likely younger than Elijah Craig Small Batch (probably a blend of 8-12 year barrels). Now that you’re amply educated, let’s get to tasting in this Heaven Hill 7 Year Bottled in Bond bourbon review.
