Heaven Hill at one time had a six year old Bottled-in-Bond that was only available in Kentucky. This was an inexpensive Bourbon that tasted like a very expensive Bourbon. It was underpriced for what it was. As the Bourbon boom continued, Heaven Hill discontinued that Bourbon and came out with a more expensive seven year old version of the brand that was not available in Kentucky. I can understand the hike in price because as I said before, the six year old was underpriced, but not why it was not available in Kentucky. I found a bottle and Matt and I have tasted it. It is still a very good Bourbon and priced as it should be.
The other Bourbon we are tasting is Medley Brothers. Charles Medley and his son Sam revived this old Medley brand to be a companion brand to their Wathens Single Barrel Bourbon. This is a lower price point brand than the Wathens, but still of the high quality I would expect from Charles and Sam. The brand refers to the five Medley Brothers that started distilling together after the repeal of Prohibition. The label has the traditional look of the original brand.
