Old Fitzgerald 19yr

This BIB wheater is some of the oldest wheated stock at Heaven Hill. The 17 was one of the most delicious bourbons of this year, and the 19 does not disappoint. Dark red mahogny color, with nose of red fruit, apple scnapps, and very rich oak, with leather chair, baked cinnamon, and amish apple butter emerging as well. On the palate, nothing but deep rich bourbon flavor, wave after wave of toffee, caramel, and more red fruit. There’s a nuttiness as well along with the oak. It’s oaky, but NOT over-oaked. Between a Stagg Jr or WLW and this, I think the Old Fitz 19 and 17 win that pepsi challenge every time.
