Distilled in 2006 from a mashbill that was 65% malt and 35% corn. Heaven Hill selected 141 barrels to create what is the 9th version of this annual series from the 5th and 7th floors of Rickhouse Y located in Bardstown, Kentucky. The whiskey was bottled without chill-filtering.  
Member Ratings and Notes
n: soft velvety nose of caramel and candied corn. Pumpkin bread, light molasses, and Butterfinger candy bar. Very rich with some chocolate covered raisin. 

t: creamy and rich with flavors of toasted corn and creme brûlée - with some type of pumpkin spice to it. White frosting and toasted coconut finish. Soft oak and very pleasant to drink but quite sweet throughout. This is a unique whiskey that is somewhere between a scotch and a bourbon. [B-/B]
This stuff smells like vanilla scented soap. The palate has oak and cardboard and is slightly sweet. That's pretty much all there is to it, and that same oaky cardboard note carries into the finish. It's boring with no complexity or depth of flavor.
A weird one, but kind of a good weird (not great, just good enough). Coconut-vanilla nose, nutty. Almond Joy. Palate is quite sweet with lots of bubblegum continuing into the the lengthy finish.
Evergreen , cut Christmas tree, aqua net hairspray. Spearmint bubble gum.  Much on the same on the palate with notes of charred molasses, burnt pretzels and star anise on the finish.

Interestingly weird and nice to try but it didn't leave me wanting more.
