The Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond series, released by Heaven Hill Distillery, is a tribute to the rich history of the Old Fitzgerald brand and the historic Bottled-in-Bond designation. This series is inspired by an original 1950's Old Fitzgerald diamond decanter, which beautifully encapsulates the brand's legacy. The Old Fitzgerald brand, first registered in 1884, was eventually sold to "Pappy" Van Winkle during Prohibition. In 1999, Heaven Hill acquired the brand and has since been distilling it at the Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, KY.
The Spring 2023 release of this series is a 10-year-old bourbon. It showcases a bright burnished copper color. On the nose, it presents delightful notes of brown sugar, molasses, and light baking spices complemented by hints of orange peel. The palate is soft and gentle, revealing flavors of butterscotch, subtle oak, and baking spices, particularly cloves. The finish is long, warm, and slightly tannic, with a peppery tingle and a hint of barrel char at the very end.
This bourbon is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship and dedication of Heaven Hill Distillery. It not only honors the past but also sets a benchmark for future releases. Whether you're a seasoned bourbon enthusiast or new to the world of whiskey, the Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Spring 2023 release is a treat that promises a memorable tasting experience.
