Old Fitzgerald 'Bottled In Bond' 15 Year Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Heaven Hill Brands
750 ML (Standard)
There'sa good amount of complexity here.Caramel apple, strawberry and creamed corn segue into moderate maple syrup sweetness, big oak and a blast of baking spices again, more than you expect in pretty much any wheated bourbon.Syrupy and fairly rich on the initial palate.
Caramel corn, Werther originals like caramel candy, florals, strawberry jam fruitiness, baking spices and old oak.
The finish turns toward old oak, with a tannic dryness that actually helps temper the initial sweetness richness.
One distillery that focuses more intently on wheated Whiskey than most is Kentucky's Heaven Hill, which produces not one but two wheated bourbons-Larceny and Old Fitzgerald-in addition to a straight-up wheat Whiskey in the form of Bernheim.All three of those brands are now well-established, but that hasn't stopped the distillery from tinkering with their releases, developing new twists on each.
