John E. Fitzgerald’s original “private label” Bourbon is a storied brand. First introduced in 1870 it was first produced for rail and steamship lines and private clubs where it became an exclusive Bourbon of railroad and steamship barons and was uniquely suited to the culture of the Old South. Around 1900, “Fitz” finally released his brand to the Bourbon-loving American public and also began marketing in Europe. At time of its introduction, “Old Fitz”, as it became known, was one of the few Bourbons distilled in the pot still method, and continued to be made that way until about 1913. During Prohibition, when the Bourbon was one of a select few distilled under government supervision for the national medicinal trade, “Old Fitz” was acquired by colourful, old-fashioned whiskey man Pappy Van Winkle who introduced the “Whisper of Wheat” to the original recipe. Today Old Fitzgerald is critically acclaimed for its distinct, complex nose and taste and has even being served in the White House in many administrations. By substituting wheat for the more traditional rye in the grain recipe Old Fitzgerald finishes with a rounder, softer profile.
Tasting note: Amber honey hue. Generous, friendly bouquet brims with roasted walnut, candied almond, maple syrup aromas; a remarkably charming nose. In the mouth, it begins sweet at entry, then turns succulent at midpalate as flavors of dried fruit, black pepper and oak resin compete for dominance. Sweet finish is clean and extended. A robust, uncomplicated Bourbon. 45% Alc./Vol. Rating 90-95
