Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond 14 Year (Fall 2020)
Old Fitzgerald // Kentucky, USA
Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond 14 Year is the sixth release in the bottled in bond decanter series which first began with a spring 2018 release. This wheated bourbon was produced by Heaven Hill and was distilled in one distillation season (fall 2005). Aged for 14 years, this fall 2020 release bears a black label as other fall releases have done. This is the first Old Fitzgerald 14 year-old to be nationally released in the decanter series; previously there was a Visitors Center & Kentucky allocated 14 Year bottling with a red label released in 2018. This black label release was pulled from different warehouses, different floors, and from different dates than that red label release.

"The scent of warm, buttery bread and autumnal baked apple wafts out of the glass. But that bread goes bananas when sipped. There's a bit of toasted sesame there, kind of like halvah, along with tart, ripe apricot, quince, and roasted cashews. A pleasant pop of peppercorn adds to the spicy component, with a soothing, long lasting, creamy richness in the finish. "
