Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond is a twice yearly release of varying aged bourbon. For the spring 2021 release, Heaven Hill chose to bottle an 8 year old bourbon for the first time in the series. The end result is simply a classic pour which highlights brown sugar and sweeter notes intertwined with hints of fruit. It’s a sip that draws you back in for more, not because any one part is particularly outstanding, but instead due to the overall well-roundedness of the whiskey. This is a bourbon that is incredibly easy to sip, and the bottle will be sure to go fast once cracked open.
