Heroes and Heretics Stateside Tasting Notes
Nose: Freshly cut hay and dried apricots.
Palate: Peaches in syrup, buttered corn with a dash of dark chocolate and red chilli.
Finish: A long finish of apple pie and sponge cake.
Colour: Natural colour; coats my copita with a thick gloss. Prominent legs quickly slide down the side of the glass.
Nose: Cornbread soaked in golden syrup. Gingernut biscuits dipped in tea. The skin of red apples during Autumn. Oak, wood spice, and vanilla as the cask makes an appearance. The alcohol is well integrated with no burn.
Palate: Full mouthfeel. Warm buttered cornbread. Jamaican ginger cake and custard. Milk chocolate-covered nuts. A menthol characteristic adds a touch of mint. Again, alcohol is well integrated, lending body without heat.
Finish: Medium to long finish. Starts gentle, and then builds through layers of warmth to a spicy conclusion.

About this whiskey
Stateside Bourbon is a Heaven Hill whiskey bottled by indie bottlers Heroes & Heretics. Heaven Hill Distilleries is a private, American family-owned and operated distillery. Founded in 1935 it's headquarters are in Bardstown, Kentucky. The distillery makes the Heaven Hill brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. They age their whiskeys in American Oak. American oak is dense and contains a lot of monogalloyl glucose. This gives the whiskey a mellow, smooth vanilla flavour profile.
Imagine walking in fields of gold, the sun warming your skin. The sprawling farm estates of Kentucky spreading out beyond the horizon. You relax, feeling great and at ease, taking things slow, one day at a time. The comforting aroma of fresh cut hay and dried apricots fills your nose. The glorious taste of peaches in syrup and buttered corn. A dash of dark chocolate and red chilli delight on the tongue. A wonderful, long finish of apple pie and sponge cake. There’s nothing quite like this beautiful thrill, with compliments, from Louisville.
