Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond 19 Year (Fall 2022)
This is the tenth release in Heaven Hill's Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond Decanter Series which first began in spring 2018. At 19 years-old, this also marks the oldest release in the series to date. It follows all the bottled in bond regulations, one of which dictates that it be from one distillery in one distilling season (January-June or July-December) — these barrels were produced in September 2003 and bottled in October 2022. The bottling features bourbon from three floors of Rickhouse F and one floor of Rickhouse X at Heaven Hill's main campus. Available on an allocated basis beginning November 2022. (SRP $240)

Lot No. 40 Dark Oak is made from 100% rye which is first column-distilled and then pot-distilled. It is aged in American oak casks (char #2) and then it finishes its maturation in heavily-charred oak casks (char #4). It's bottled at 48% ABV. Available in British Columbia in November 2020 followed by Ontario in February 2021. It made its US debut in September 2022.
Jack Daniel's Twice Barreled American Single Malt (2022 Release)
This 2022 Special Release bottling from Jack Daniel's features an American single malt whiskey made from 100% malted barley, a first in the history of the brand. After distillation, the new make whiskey goes through the brand's charcoal mellowing process before entering new, charred American oak barrels for a minimum of 4 years. After this initial maturation process, the whiskey is then transferred into Spanish oloroso sherry casks from Antonio Paez Lobato Cooperage for 2+ years. It's bottled at cask proof, which for these bottles is between 106.1-107.8 proof. Available as of November 2022. (SRP $70 for 700ml)
