Whisky Reviews for Old Fitzgerald's 1849 08-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.00 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    One can generally tell the bottling year from the bottom of the bottle -- mine has a "77" on the bottom, which denotes that this was bottled around the year 1977, which means this was distilled by Stitzel-Weller.

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    My score of 91 is for the 1975 bottling. The first Stitzel-Weller juice I've had, and it is definitely different from current stuff you find nowadays. Smells like old books and incense, yet still quite fresh... I cannot tell if this is because it's SW or if it's because of old bottle effect or a combination of both. The palate is pleasant enough, but could be better if higher proof I'm sure. Anyways, this dram is a bit like a dream to me, soft, ethereal, and oh, so quaffable, if I'm moneyed enough to quaff, that is.

  3. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Just opened my bottle (bottled 1977).

    Just wonderful, my friends... a profile that can't be made nowadays by current bourbon distilleries.

    Also 91 points.
