Insider knowledge: Old Fitzgerald 12 Year Old whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from America. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Old Fitzgerald 12 Year Old whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
Nose: Corn-on-the-cob with salted butter, thick vanilla, oak and hints of banana.
Palate: Chewy toffee, vanilla, caramel and more corn. A little bit of coffee later on.
Finish: Quite long, with lasting vanilla toffee notes.
This was a fab experience.Yes you do need to try a whole bottle (possibly not all at once...but each to his/her own) before deciding whether you like it. This one reminded me of Christmas for some reason. At this price an absolute bargain...just don't tell anyone );-}

With a small nip you taste the whiskey and form an idea of what you are tasting which really should be kept to yourself.
Jumping online and "rating" a whiskey after such a trivial experience is trully absurd.
Buy a bottle, spend some time with it, then you have something worth saying.
BTW - GREAT whiskey, a lot going on for a great price, worth a shot if your looking for something with a fair slathering of complexity

A great taste, perfect for a night when everything else in my cabinet was unsuitable.
