Whiskey Notes:

Heaven Hill Distillery is proud to announce the release of the fall 2020 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. At 14-years-old, this release is comprised of barrels produced in fall of 2005, and bottled in fall of 2020. The sixth national release ushers in the latest hallmark series to the Bottled-in-Bond legacy.

Bottled in an ornate decanter, the fall edition denotes a black label, which is consistent for all fall releases of the Bourbon. The releases tax strip, a signature of transparency on Bottled-in-Bond products, will disclose when the liquid was produced and bottled. The Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond fall edition will be available in the 750ml size on an allocated basis. It meets all the strict requirements of a Bottled-in-Bond: the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume.

While a previous red-label 14-year-old Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond edition was released as our visitors center and Kentucky-only allocated product, the fall 2020 edition is the first 14-year-old Bourbon to be part of the nationally released series. It features Bourbon pulled from across our different rickhouses, at different floors, and barreled on different production dates. As a leader of the Bottled-in-Bond category, Heaven Hill is proud to offer a premium, allocated product within this special class that showcases the authenticity and quality of our American Whiskey portfolio. Acquired in 1999 by Heaven Hill, the legendary Old Fitzgerald line is well-known for its distilling pedigree and intriguing story behind its namesake, John E. Fitzgerald.

Tasting Notes

NOSE: The nose is very rich and malty. It’s very fruity and a little tangy, with some subtle musty notes. There are hints of fresh cut grass, hazelnuts, caramel, and dark fruits.

PALATE: There’s a sweetness of maple syrup, fig, caramel apple, and vanilla balanced with malt, yeast, and a dash of pepper. It’s like a fresh baked pie in a glass. The mouthfeel is very buttery and smooth with a little heat at the end.

FINISH: Rich caramel and oak with soothing spice

PROOF: 86 (43% ABV)

Awards/Reviews

Best Bourbon, Double Gold - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2019
93 Points - Whisky Advocate
"Oak-forward and earthy, the nose is dominated by dark cigar wrapper, leather, grain bin, and dry autumn leaves, with overripe peaches and plenty of toasted pecan and walnut lurking just beneath. The palate is full-bodied and chewy, yet displays the softness you’d expect from such a well-aged wheater, as the flavor marries alluring caramel-and-maple sweetness with mixed nuts to achieve perfect balance."
