"The additional time in barrel for the Fall '19 release from Old Fitzgerald has imbued the spirit with some added complexity. The first sensation on the nose is of wet stone and herbs followed by cinnamon toast, then cake frosting in the background. The whiskey is lively and bright on the palate while maintaining a gentle balance from front to back. Here flavors are more wheat-driven with accents of mixed peppercorn and a finish of buttered toast. "
