  • Excerpt: All in all, it’s hard for me to say if it’s simply my eccentric palate that finds this bourbon to ultimately end up unbalanced in favor of that oaky tartness, or if this is objective truth.

  • Excerpt: I can’t guess exactly what went sideways with this bottling, but I do know you’ll find some much more interesting expressions if you look further back in the lineup’s history.

  • Intro:

    Distilled in 2010 and bottled for the Fall 2021 release season, this is the second release of Old Fitzgerald for the limited edition Decanter Series in 2021. Produced using all the hallmarks of Bottled in Bond, this bourbon is bottled at 50% ABV and leverages Heaven Hill's wheated mashbill. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Big cinnamon, caramel, toffee, honey, big tobacco and some sweet raisin bread. Lovely and sweet.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouthfeel, a pinprick of heat. Sweet cream, big toffee and nougat. Caramel is prominent, as is the sweet icing. Light tannin, some red hots candies and a bit of praline.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Oaky, dry, some toffee, raisin bread, honey and baked apples.

  • Overall:

    Really unique, a lot going on, and some unique character for a younger wheater. I like the light inclusion of the cinnamon, I like the apple notes, and the tobacco on the nose is really enticing.
