    Old Fitzgerald 1849

    I have mentioned before my deep suspicion of any product that starts with the word "old".  However some American whisky marketing class must teach that all products should contain the words "Old" or "Reserve" or at least be named after an individual such as Jack, Jim, Elijah, Evan, George or Pappy.   "Old" Fitzgerald, once produced at legendary and now closed Stitzel-Weller Distillery is a wheated bourbon now produced by Heaven Hill.  Nice nose, bubblegum, candy, vanilla and some floral notes.  The taste is sweet at first; pancake syrup, honey, black treacle then burnt caramel and licorice notes.  Burst of spice at end that lingers through finish.   Pretty good is you like that sort of thing.  (I do).
