Heaven Hill Distillery is one of the most recognized and celebrated in North America. Their Bottled in Bond series is extraordinary and the Old Fitzgerald is an incredible example of richness and power, although it can be extremely tricky to find in the wild. This 8 Year release is produced with their wheated mash bill of 75% corn/20% wheat/5% barley and bottled at the standard bonded requirement of 100 proof. The balance on this whiskey is outstanding, with the nose full of brown sugar, cinnamon, fresh oak and vanilla. The palate gives way to vanilla, brown sugar, rich fruit and crème brulee. The finish is long and very balanced, with notes of white peach and slight peppery spice.
