Review #1706 | Bourbon Review #703

Distiller: Brown-Forman

Bottler: Old Forester

Brand: Old Forester

Selection: N/A

ABV: 58.15% ABV

Age: 9 Years


Nose: Sweet, oh so rich. Raisins, honey, toffee, banana bread, zucchini bread, pungent cream and caramel. Wow.

Taste: Sweet on the palate, delivering lots of pepper, banana bread, honey and some astringency. The proof is nice but this drinks a bit hotter than it should. Oaky structure, lots of tannins.

Finish: Long finish, a bit hot still, but oaky and delicious. Tannic and dry, loaded with raisin, toffee, tobacco and vanilla.

Overall: Delightful and unique. Drinking a bit hotter than it should be, but the oak walks a fine line perfectly without misstep.

Thanks for reading!
