Old Fitzgerald 12 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%

Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 Lots of layers. A great dessert whiskey. Thanksgiving dinner?

7 The nose delivers more than the palate. Once more, oak overwhelms fruit and bitterly dries the finish.

W.L. Weller 19 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 A bourbon of some presence and elegance. With dessert, or after dinner?

W.L. Weller 19 Years Old
Bourbon - U.S.A. - 45.00%
8 If this had been bottled for six or seven years ago, I would probably have loved its big flavours. I like oak, but this is too much, and too old, for me. If you are an oak extremist, rush out and buy ...
