The Stitzel-Weller distillery has gained legendary status among bourbon connoisseurs for a number of reasons. First, it’s the distillery opened by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle and run under his ownership for much of its history. The liquid inside this bottle is most likely produced under his strewardship.
This is a 1970’s bottling that has been matured for 8 years in charred new oak barrels, this is a elegant and rare sipping whiskey with a sophisticated, mellow fruity flavour with hints of vanilla and caramel. Old Fitzgerald 1849 is very popular with Dave Broom and Jim Murray!
***Please note that this is a 1970s bottling***
