Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Honey amber colored, with notes of honey, floral and cooked corn on the nose. The palate is viscous and sweet with an attack of sweet baking spices, tobacco and a hint of licorice. The finish lingers long in the mouth. (Mar 2013)
Old Forester 86 Proof is made in the same classic style originated by George Garvin Brown in 1870. Twice-distilled, this remarkable spirit is crafted using a precise grain recipe of corn, rye and malted barley. Old Forester is richer in rye than most bourbons, resulting in a uniquely full, rich, genuine character. This is what bourbon is supposed to be. Year after year.
