Review #1011 – Old Forester 1910: Old Fine Whiskey

Review #1011 | Bourbon Review #524 – Old Forester 1910: Old Fine Whiskey

The Schtick: This is a double barrel bourbon release from Old Forester as an entry in their vintage line of expressions. It is first matured in a normal bourbon cask, then moved to a second, highly charred barrel.

Distiller: Brown Forman

Bottler: Brown Forman

ABV: 46.5% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Really prominent maple, brown sugar and clove. Sweet melon, light banana. Baking spices. Honey.

Taste: Thin to medium. Sort of muted. Sugar, light clove, some spice. Not a lot here. Oddly dry and oaky.

Finish: Short, lots of oak here. Cocoa. Sawdust. Weirdly musty. Overwhelming fake cocoa and oak.

Overall: This isn’t for me. It’s one dimensional, disappointing in the palate and finish, and generally not too complex.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 3
