Professional Wine Reviews for John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve 20 Year Old Bourbon

Rated 96 by Beverage Tasting Institute
Distilled at the now legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery. Rich aromas of vanilla toffee, marzipan, cocoa, nutmeg and cinnamon. Similar follow-through on the palate, with black raspberry, maple syrup, teaberry, and dusty dried corn thrown into the mix. Warming cinnamon and polished oak on the finish. The sweet notes balance and integrate nicely with the oak. An exemplary rendition of an ultra-aged wheated bourbon. (Whisky Advocate)
Rated 94 by Wine Enthusiast
Made from a blend of 12 barrels from the original Stitzel-Weller distillery, this was aged for a remarkable 20 years. Look for a very dark, ruddy hue and complex, sweet aroma that suggests dried figs and vanilla bean. It’s drying on the palate, with caramel chased by dusty cocoa and clove, finishing long and spiced, with hints of red fruit and figs. Limited availability, and a collector’s item.

Additional Information on John E. Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve 20 Year Old Bourbon

Producer John E. Fitzgerald

Country: United States

The first European settlers to consider growing grapevines in the United States must have been delighted when they discovered the now famous wine regions within California, Oregon and elsewhere. Not even in the Old World are there such fertile valleys, made ideal for vine cultivation by the blazing sunshine, long, hot summers and oceanic breezes. As such, it comes as little surprise that today more than eighty-nine percent of United States wines are grown in the valleys and on the mountainsides of California, where arguably some of the finest produce in the world is found. However, American wine does not begin and end with California, and due to the vast size of the country and the incredible range of terrains and climates found within the United States, there is probably no other country on earth which produces such a massive diversity of wines. From ice wines in the northern states, to sparkling wines, aromatized wines, fortified wines, reds, whites, rosés and more, the United States has endless surprises in store for lovers of New World wines.
