Tasting Notes

Brown-Forman's Old Forester brand has seen a tremendous increase in popularity over the last few years, and it's casks like this that explain why. Aged in Warehouse H on the 7th floor, this barrel is one of the richest and most intense of any Old Forester we have bottled. It is sweet, full of barrel spice, and a perfect winter time bourbon. The soft and approachable style that has made bourbon one of the most popular drinks in the world is on full display.

    This single barrel should please many bourbon drinkers. It is pretty and easy to drink. The nose is a sweet vanilla invitation . In the mouth it is on the light side with burnt sugar flavors and a hint of vanilla. Pure and clean it is made to sit back and enjoy.

    After coating the walls of my glass, I watched- mesmerized by the long, evenly spaced, oily legs slowly meander down the glass. The aromatics began their run with heavy oak notes at first and then hurdling into cherry Italian syrup with just a hint of vanilla waiting at the finish. Sipping this was way too easy. A sweet note sprinted forward first, quickly passing the baton to a cherry cough drop (in a good way), and a hint of brown sugar balanced the slightly medicinal quality of the cherry. The finish left nothing to hide as I got a distinct lidocaine sensation and slowly came to my senses about where that faint medicinal quality was coming from. The red fruit note lingered a bit, as if I had a “Gusher’s” gummy stuck in the recesses of my molars, giving a bit more dimension at the end.

    Even after all we've done to open people up to the Old Forester brand, it still remains a bit of a second tier offering. They're distillery bottlings offer excellent value and the new whisky row Series has been well received, but it's status as a stalwart value has not lit the bourbon world on fire. Where the distillery really shines are in these excellent single casks. This one is no exception. An impeccable nose of sweet candied corn, subtle spice, and tangy vanilla. The palate is so soft and smooth you don't expect the exceptional length that it brings. Lower on the spice than many of our previous OFs and one of the cleanest we've ever had, no varnish no funky, just sweet oak and caramel. Pure pleasure distilled and bottled at 90 proof.

    Fantastic old school Bourbon, the kind we remember drinking in the past! Dry and creamy with wonderful smoky wood, notes of spice a nice smooth mid palate and fine finish. This is how Bourbon used to be and I love it!
    Top Value!

    This is one of the richest barrels of Old Forester we have had the pleasure of selling. It's sweet and full bodied and deeply spicy all at the same time. The brown sugar notes are off the charts. The nose and palate are both full of sweet wood spices, tobacco leaf, creme brulee, and toffee. The tannins are super fine and bring in an earthy and savory component that keeps everything lined up. Vanilla and cream abound on the finish. All in all, this is a perfect classic bourbon. Rich and smooth, a delight to sip.

    Aromatic, spicy, with an awesome dry finish lacquered with delicious cedar richness and piney freshness. I want to put shoes on this whiskey and take it for a mountain hike. It drinks like a dream-- winter spice (clove and anise) on the nose, excellent texture on the palate, and a third act that cuts the sweetness in half and replaces it with dusty, earthy tones that bring this well-priced bourbon firmly into the big leagues.

    This is a solid, wood-centric whiskey, with notes of oak spice, cedar, and good char melting into dark caramel and cinnamon. Banana, cherry, and coconut come in for support, but the wood does the talking here. The coconut shows itself more on the palate before moving back towards toasted barrel flavors and a bit of spice on a dry finish.
