  • Intro:

    This is an old iteration of Old Fitzgerald Prime, speculated to have been distilled and aged at the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery.

  • Nose:

    Caramel, vanilla, cinnamon and a good deal of leather spice. Not too punchy in one direction or another and very mild. For the proof, this makes sense.

  • Taste:

    It has a thin mouth feel that presents vanilla and some oaky character right away up front. Minor caramel, theres some good cinnamon and molasses. Gentle and well blended for a bottom shelfer.

  • Finish:

    The finish is short-medium in duration and surprisingly not harsh. I dont know if this is a result of the age, the supposed S-W characteristics and quality or what, but its very drinkable. Enjoyable even.

  • Overall:

    Its a solid bourbon. I dont see a reason to pay an absurd amount of money for it, but Im pleasantly surprised overall. This was mild, delicious and for a bottom shelf product, very drinkable. Its always cool to drink history.

  • Score:

    6
