Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond 9 Year Bourbon starts its adventure with a creamy, sweet, and spicy decadent nose. There is a cascade of burnt caramel or crème brûlée. It smells like it looks; dark, creamy, and rich—burnt brown sugar.
The palate is a perfect blend of spicy sweetness. The wheat spice might be a little more dominant, but in combination with the excellent viscosity and creamy sweetness, it creates the perfect blend. The palate was hotter than it’s 100 proof, but that is good for this bourbon. It seems more like a 112 proof bourbon.
The finish of this Old Fitzgerald Bottled-in-Bond 9 Year is nice and warm. It goes down easy, and it’s not too hot on the back of the throat.
