What's in a name? Heaven Hill 4 Year Old whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Heaven Hill 4 Year Old whisky, rather than whiskey.
Have tasted better bourbons. I can't decide what the nose is all about - earthy with a touch of fruit maybe? Taste is quite weak - slightly sweet but with spirit. Finish is fruity and peters out quickly. But then the packaging also looks cheap...

The previous 5-star user review has distorted this whiskey's place in the results. It is okay, and made by one of the last family-owned distilleries in KY, which says a lot, but it's not even close to the kind of whiskey that is worth 5 stars. I'm giving it 1 star just to even it out in the results.

Living in Kentucky for 32 years and being a bourbon aficionado let me warn you that Heaven Hill is not worth 16 pounds. Here in the states we pay approximately (US)$8 per bottle or perhaps (GB) 4L. It is very cheap, very dirty with a grit that will stay on the palette for hours. If you are mixing this bourbon fine but a true sippin' whisky this is not.
