    I have to agree if you can find it and don't mind the money this is it.
    Other then that EWSB is the best you get without breaking the bank

    While I also like Parker's, I'm not sure I be willing to call it the best example of HH's essence.

    If you are looking for the essence of HH I would say just buy a bottle of EW black.

    Very surprisingly I found the EW 23 to be the best HH I have tasted so far. I had sat my mind before tasting that it should be far over age but it surely wasn’t.

    I would exclude any of the Parker's, not because they aren't great, but because they aren't widely or readily available.

    To me, consistently the best example of Heaven Hill's best, that is available just about everywhere and available all of the time, is Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage.

    And, what would you call as the best example?
