  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Henry McKenna 10 Single Barrel Bourbon
  • Description
    • Henry McKenna came to America in 1837 from Ireland and settled in Kentucky to make bourbon using his family recipe. Now made by Heaven Hill Distillery, this Henry McKenna bottling is a Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Aged 10 years, this release is also a single barrel release with each bottle bearing both the bottling date and the barrel number. The bottling also meets the Bottled in Bond criteria, meaning it's the product of a single distillation season from one distiller at a single distillery, aged in a federally bonded warehouse at exactly 100 proof.
