Barrel Finished marks the 12th edition of Parker’s Heritage, a limited edition edition whiskey named in honor of the late Heaven Hill master distiller Parker Beam. This is the second Parker’s Heritage release made in collaboration with master blender Alain Royer who assisted Parker in the creation of Cognac Barrel Finish. Barrel Finished is made from bourbons aged for 7-8 years on the upper floors of Rickhouse Q. The bourbon was then transferred to barrels that previously held orange curaÃ§ao liqueur for four months before bottling. Parker was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also called ALS or Lou Gehrigâ€™s disease) in 2010. Like the previous five Parker’s Heritage releases, this bottling too will donate portions of its proceeds to the ALS Association. Bottled at 110 proof without chill-filtration, this release will hit shelves beginning September 2018.
