    Parker Beam Collection

    Since I was spending my time in airports and jets this week, I tried catching up on my podcasts. On Whiskycast it was reported that HH is going to be releasing a collection to honor Parker Beam with his name on it - had not be officially announced though in late July when the podcast was made. I didn't remember seeing anything on that here. Anyone know anything about this one ?

    Re: Parker Beam Collection

    I have no idea, so I just now went to the Heaven Hill state and asked the question.

    It will be fun to see whether I get an answer that contains any actual information. Or will it look somewhat like the following:

    "We at Heaven Hill continue to introduce new products designed to expand our markets in response to consumer demand. The introduction of any new product line will be announced in due course through press releases and advertising.


    "Thank you for your interest in Heaven Hill products. Feel free to contact us at any time if you have additional questions."
    Hell, I bet I could write that stuff for a living!

    Re: Parker Beam Collection

    I look forward to this. Gradually, I have come to recognize EWSB as the perhaps most professionally accomplished bourbon. Hopefully this one continues in the same vein.

    Also, here´s hoping that it won´t be such a chore to track it down.
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    I watched them bottle it last night...

    I didn't get a chance to taste it (got busy) but I did look at the proof...122.6.

    Oh Yeah!
    Bettye Jo, would a picture be out of the question? The bottle you describe sounds very interesting! Do we know what distribution is going to be like? Is this something that will end up at Binny's?

    Hi Scott

    I'll try to remember to bring my camera with me and snap a few for you.

    The test samples (200 ml) were sent out Monday...

    Here's the "official" press release on this new bottling
