The Schtick: This is a 50% ABV release from Old Forester. It bears no age statement.

Bottler: Old Forester

ABV: 50A% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Bottle, Purchased


Nose: Vanilla, there’s some solid cinnamon and….banana bread?

Taste: Rich vanilla with a mild spice kick. It’s a little hot, but not unreasonably so. Banana is back though. I can’t tell if there’s malty sweetness that makes me think of sweet bread or if there’s truly banana.

Finish: Okay yeah it’s banana. I never really expected this but it doesn’t put me off too much. The finish is short but well blended and leaves gently with some more vanilla and banana bread notes.

Overall: For what it costs, it’s good. Not OGD good, but not bad at all.

Thanks for reading!
