Whisky reviews for Heaven Hill 2009 Arc

3 users have left 3 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 87.33 points.

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It's a pity that Whiskeybase ratings in general seem negatively biased towards bourbon whiskey. It's difficult for (in particular) Europeans to appreciate bourbon whiskey, because they are able to taste lots of good Scotch (and Irish) whiskies as well. Please don't get too narrow-minded; this Heaven Hill bottled by Archives for the Bottle Shops of Athens, Georgia, United States is a fine dram.
    • Nose
      Starts with lots of lemon grass intermingled with fresh pencil shavings. Followed by citric fruitiness of Granny Smith apples, lime, and gooseberries. Cumin seeds, hickory, and cinnamon with an underlying sweetness. Some grassiness as well. Old leathery notes in the background.
    • Taste
      Regardless of the high ABV, unbelievable silky mouth texture. The palate is rich and round with pinewood, glace cherries, and Turkish Delight. Liquorice with aniseed flavors and touches of caraway and cinnamon. Toasted chestnuts and salted peanuts later on. Candy floss and baked bananas as well.
    • Finish
      Long with bitter-sweet oak. A little black pepper. Nutmeg. Tannins. It's all quite creamy and chewy.
