It's been a while since we saw something new, tasty, and affordable from a major American whiskey producer.  However, with a keen eye on Maker's Mark, Heaven Hill has just released their answer to the bargain-priced wheated Bourbon.  At 92 proof, it's got a bit more pop than MM, while maintaining more creaminess and less of the big sweet wood that characterizes the Weller releases.  It's far better than Bernheim, their straight wheat expression, and it makes another fine edition to the $25 and under whiskey club.  Creamy, supple, balanced, and well-made.  What else could you ask for?  Our first batch has almost sold through, but we'll have more coming next week.
