    Any Info? - Alchemist Heaven Hill 12yr 1999

    Haven't heard of this one before...so it in a new catalog at work. Did a quick google search and it didn't really turn up much of anything.

    It appears to be from a Scottish company: http://www.alc-hem-ist.com/spirits.htm

    I'm certainly interested in trying such a concoction!

    Yeah, saw that website, but didn't see mention of this item.

    I'm sure what little I've dug up you've already found yourself. I'm curious now, though. The tweet directed at Jason Pyle says that it's an 86 proof blend of bourbon, rum, armagnac, etc., but an online retailer lists it as 63% and if it is in fact a blend of different spirits that doesn't fit with the specific, bourbon-oriented, name (Alchemist Heaven Hill 12yr) or what the company has done in the past

    According to the catalog, it's listed at 92 proof. I sent a message to the distributor to ask for more info. Could be pretty cool.

    $79 at HiTime. So it's a very small batch of HH 12yr then? Anyone tasted any?

    From the Scotch side of things, everything I've had from Alchemist is amazing.

    The Springbank (port finished) is among my top 10 all time favorite pours. While not a Macallan fan in general, I really loved what they did with that one - and the HP was amazing too.

    I have not tried the Calvados or Armagnacs.

    I'd bet their HH would be pretty tasty - Gordon Wright has excellent taste.

    A gift of two bottles of Alchemist Heaven Hill 12-Year Old came my way today (via someone in the U.K.). I'll bunker one, crack the other and report back if anyone's still interested.
