Parker’s Heritage Collection Golden Anniversary is one of the most special and ambitious bourbon whiskies available today (“available” may be the wrong word as it is it becoming increasingly rare).

It is the third edition in a range from the Heaven Hill Distillery all of which are tributes to master distiller Parker Beam. Parker’s Heritage Collection Golden Anniversary was released in 2009 to mark 50 years of Parker Beam’s involvement in making bourbon whisky.

It is a blended bourbon. There is where a distillery takes hundreds of barrels and marries them together to get the required taste. Most of the bourbon sold across the world is blended.

There is a marvellous difference with the blending process of Parker’s Heritage Collection Golden Anniversary though. It is made from barrels from each of the five decades that Parker Beam has been making bourbon whisky.

That includes barrels from the 1990s and 2000s that were stored in parts of the warehouse that promote aging. These barrels were married to smaller amounts from both the 1980s and 1970s. To finish, Heaven Hill was able to find barrels from 1968 that still contained whisky. The 1960s era bourbon only accounts for 3% of Parker’s Heritage Collection Golden Anniversary, but it is there nonetheless. Blending such varied barrels is testament to the skill of the distillers.

On its release, Parker Beam said with remarkable understatement: “This was a fun and rewarding project and I hope everyone agrees with me that we have created a very special bourbon, with blending unlike any other.”

Only 4,500 bottles of Parker’s Heritage Collection Golden Anniversary was made. The word “unique” is often overused but this genuinely qualifies. More...
