Heaven Hill Distillery has released the Fall 2023 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey at 8 years old.
Comprised of barrels produced in Fall 2015, this is the twelfth national release in this decanter series.
As is tradition, the Fall edition comes with a black label. As was the case for past editions, the tax strip, which has always been a signature of transparency on bottled-in-bond products, discloses when the liquid was produced and bottled.
Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Fall edition meets the requirements of a bottled-in-bond: the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume.
The Fall 2023 edition of Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has a nose of brown sugar and toasted bread in addition to cinnamon and nutmeg, the company reports. On the palate is peaches and cream, followed by peppery spice and caramel sweetness. Spice notes linger in the finish along with peach and pear notes and caramelized brown sugar.
“As a leader of the Bottled-in-Bond category, Heaven Hill is proud to offer a premium product within this special class which showcases the authenticity and quality of the American Whiskey portfolio,” says Conor O’ Driscoll, Master Distiller at Heaven Hill Distillery. “The Fall 2023 8-year-old Old Fitzgerald Bottled-In-Bond has the best qualities of a classic Kentucky Bourbon with the unique sweetness and spice this beloved brand is known for.”
The suggested retail price is $109.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
Heaven Hill acquired the Old Fitzgerald line in 1999.
This follows the recent release of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof C923.
