PennyPacker Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
A super affordable, youngish Bourbon, reported to be around 3-4 years old and produced by Heaven Hill for the bottler. While the mash bill remains undisclosed, we do know it's at least 70% corn. Originally introduced in the 1970s as an export only label, PennyPacker was the number one selling bourbon in Europe through much of the 1970s and 80s, but was only marketed in the US as of 2013. This is its first time in Australia, so far as we're aware. 40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... PennyPacker is exactly what it says--a bang for your buck. There’s a quick, easy nose of vanilla, caramel, and alcohol before it transitions to a smooth mouthfeel. A little doughy near the finish but to be expected from young whiskey. Nothing too special, but also nothing to scoff at with its easy-drinking price. 80 points - distiller.com
