Old Fitzgerald Bonded Bourbon

(100 proof) DSP #1 – Bernheim, bottled DSP 31 – Heaven Hill, bottled 2013? $16

Golden amber color. Candy floss, honey and golden citrus on the nose, not sharp. Typical cream of wheat/plaster of Paris sweetness as well. Oily and slightly viscous, with alcohol burn fading into maple and corn sweetness at first, then more citrus and dusty-wheaty notes. The empty glass smells like bananas. Incredible value, if you like wheat Bourbons and can find it.

Very Old Fitzgerald 12 Year Bourbon

(90 proof), bottled 2009? $30

Moderate amber in color. Creamy nose, vanilla and marzipan, old furniture finish. The decrease is alcohol is evident, but there’s a drag of wood tannins across the front of the palate that takes a moment to turn from furniture shop (e.g. good wood aromatized by hot metal) to the cream of wheat sweetness. There’s some ornamentation of green spicy notes that must be from the wood, and this just feels heavier and more contemplative.

Old Weller Antique Bourbon

(107 proof) $26.50

  • Re The Cableknit, 10 hours ago jensck commented:

    Seriously strange. Maybe it's because I used a different coffee liqueur (Tempus Fugit), but I'm not sure these flavors work together.

  • Re String Theory, 11 hours ago stirred commented:

    Good winter vibes. Same vein as Left Hand and Black Lodge. Add to rotation.

  • Re Last Word, 1 day ago Craig E commented:

    Abigail Gullo makes a Last Laugh by straining this into a champagne flute and topping with cava, with a lime twist.

    Quite sweet - dropped Cointreau to 0.5 oz
