So tbere was a thread on this sometime back but of course is closed. Certainly therehas been a lot of dusty drinkables out there. The 750ml bottles of Old Fitzgerald have sediment. Its the type of sediment you see in bottled tea, where there are some flakes and some lighter colored clouds along the sides.

In a different forum i read online suggests that this is the hallmark of a good whiskey that hasnt been overly filtered.

I have opened it and had a pour. It was delicious.

Questions:

1. Is is fats, esters, and solidified oils? It's not cork because it's a twist off plastic cap.
2. If the code on the bottom is any indication of age, could that much sediment appear after only 12 yrs in the bottle?
