2019 PHC announced

Recommended Posts

I have to say that I’ll be a “Buy” on this one (first PHC in a couple of years that I’m high on...) A very nice age at 8y in a #5 Char, high up in the rickhouse, portends some good things for me on the age management side.  105 pr and NCF are both pluses, as well, though I find it interesting that proof is lower than Pikesville.  Money to charity, is gravy.

From their website: "Heaven Hill will continue this legacy and contribute a portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold to the ALS Association." 

 

Without a doubt a very worthwhile charity that many of us SB members have contributed to. I just hope that at the price they're charging for this release it's a HUGE portion of the proceeds.

I'll be nice as I sit here enjoying some PHC POH tonight. This whiskey is 96 proof, 10yrs old, cost $85.99 and is outstanding. Definitely a wonderful bottle and I'm darn glad I have one more left. According to its neck tag, $20 of each bottle was going to be donated to the ALS Association, so using slightly fuzzy math HH should donate around $40 of this years bottle to the Association. I'm hoping they do more.

HH PHC vs. WT Master's Keep this fall.   Rye battle royale.  My early money's on the turkey...

I think both are priced a bit higher than I would prefer, but I do want to do this comparison and its kind of cool that both are doing Rye's this year.

 

Sad that when KO 11 year rye batch one came out I poo-pooed the $130 asking price.  Oh how quickly times have changed and my price threshhold just keeps going up with the rising prices.

If it were released across the valley at Willett, an 8yr rye would easily be more expensive, and gobbled up immediately.

Initial review on breaking bourbon not very favorable on this one.  While I generally prefer to form my own opinions as prices start to escalate certain buying decisions may be influenced by the reviews.

The nosing and tasting experience may not come into play, I just received an email blast from Heaven Hill containing a link to a fluff pay-to-play article touting this release as THE MOST COLLECTIBLE RYE WHISKEY OF THE YEAR.

 

What a turn off.

Bourbon Pursuit didn’t give a good review either.

But..., But... It's soooo COLLECTIBLE...       That's what's really important, no?

Maybe its a bad year for Ryes, because I wasn't impressed with WTMK Rye ether.  I just picked up a Michters 10y Rye today...…… maybe I should bring it back...….

I got tickets for the "2019 Parker's Celebration" even being held on Wednesday, September 18th.  You get a bottle of the new Parker's during the event so if anyone is around at the Gazebo Wednesday night, I'll be happy to share it.

Since most bourbon bloggers seem more  intent on being a part of the bourbon blogger circle jerk (“You’re great”.  “Thanks buddy, you’re great, too.”  “Hey, Banter buddy is great, too!”  “All together...AGREED!!!”)  than being  independent thinking and unbiased reporters of Bourbonia, I give zero credence to their “opinions”.

Gotta say I generally agree with Joe here, there are a few bloggers (mostly those that don't review exclusively bourbon) that tend to think for themselves but they seem to increasingly be the exception to the rule.

Don’t get me wrong, I agree with him too. I’m just giving him a hard time because he’s my brother!
