Quality House Bourbon

Bottom shelf review alert! Previously known as “Heaven Hill White Label 80 proof” and now affectionately called “Quality House” this 3 year, 78% Corn, 12% Malted Barley, 10% Rye bourbon competes in the same category as Old Crow from Suntory and Benchmark from Sazerac. All three are basically 3yr old, 80 proof versions which turn into higher priced, older and higher proof whiskies in later lives. For me, the herbal and mint depth of the usual Heaven Hill is apparent, but without the heavier oak to mask and round out the fresh herbs. The flavor is soft, sweet, and uncomplicated. If you’re ever looking to throw some ice in a tall glass and just drink some damn Kentucky sour mash, this may just be your jam.
