Is Henry McKenna rare?
Nope. People who like Eagle Rare usually like McKenna and vice versa. Also true for Buffalo Trace and maybe Elijah Craig.
Henry McKenna came to America in 1837 from Ireland and settled in Kentucky where he set out to create a better bourbon using his family's recipe. Today, Heaven Hill offers Henry McKenna Single Barrel which is aged for 10 years and satisfies the Bottled in Bond (BiB) requirements.

Heaven Hill Distillery’s Henry McKenna Single Barrel Bourbon was announced as the “Best in Show Whiskey” at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. This is only the second time a Bourbon has won the top prize among all whiskeys from around the world, including Scotch. The only other Bourbon to win was the 2008 Parker’s Heritage Collection 27-Year-Old, a testament to Heaven Hill Distillery’s dedication to the craft of producing quality American Whiskey since 1935.
Consistency, a hallmark of Heaven Hill Distillery, is on full display for the award-winning Henry McKenna Single Barrel. The Bottled-in-Bond, 10-year-old Bourbon also received Best Single Barrel Bourbon and Best Bourbon, the exact award designations the brand received just last year in the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Given the barrel to barrel nuances that come with the single barrel designation, maintaining the incredible taste profile year in and year out demonstrates the expertise of Heaven Hill’s master tasting team.
According to editor-in-chief of Bourbon+ magazine and San Francisco Spirits Captain Fred Minnick, Henry McKenna scored higher than the best Single Malt Scotch, Irish Whiskey, and Single Malt Whiskey, products that range in retail price from $70 – $150 per bottle. Henry McKenna is an unbeatable value as a world’s best whiskey, one Minnick describes as “delicate, complex and an extraordinary Bourbon whiskey.”
One of the most prestigious competitions in whiskey has crowned its winner, and the official best whiskey of the year, according to the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, is Henry McKenna 10-Year Bottled-in-Bond Single Barrel Bourbon.
