Review #1138 | Bourbon Review #571 – Old Fitzgerald Prime

The Schtick: This is a bottom shelf release from Heaven Hill that uses the wheated mashbill. 

Distiller: Heaven Hill

Bottler: Heaven Hill

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Sharp ethanol, light caramel, faint confectioners sugar. Lightly musty. 

Taste: Thin and a bit hot, musty and sweet. There isnt a lot going on here. Its definitely young. 

Finish: Short and hot, with lots of young musty character, faint oak, some light honey and wet cardboard. 

Overall: This definitely isnt great and is a pour for the rocks or a mixed drink for sure. Other than that, Ill avoid it. 

Thanks for reading!
