Produced at the Heaven Hill distillery, Old Fitzgerald's 1849 pays homage to old style of wheated bourbon. It is said to celebrate the mash bill created by John Fitzgerald. This previously had an age statement of 8 years, but that had been dropped a few years back and now this bottling has been discontinued outright.

Tasting Notes

"Very mild on the nose with hints of fresh cut grass, vanilla, and earth. Typical signs of charcoal filtration give this bourbon a strong mineral aroma. On the palate this bourbon thins out tremendously. The key barrel characteristics are there yet muted with a bit of astringency. The finish is medium long."
