Review: Old Forester 1910

Paid: $60 for 750ml

Distilled/Owned by: Brown-Forman

Region: Kentucky

46.5% ABV

Aged For: NAS

Mashbill: 72% corn, 18% rye, 10% barley

Cask Type: New charred oak, finished in lightly toasted heavily charred oak barrels

Color: Mahogany

Drank: Neat, in a glencairn

Nose: Toasted oak, vanilla, caramel, pecan, light baking spices, corn, and more light oak

Feel: Medium body

Taste: Oak, vanilla, caramel, toffee, chocolate, burnt syrup, and maybe some banana lingering in the background

Finish: Oak again remains pronounced, medium warmth and a good lasting finish. Pepper, tannins, caramel, pecan and a bit of maple brown sugar

Thoughts: The oak notes cover a lot of the notes I’m not huge on in the Forester line, still overall I’d put this as above average.

Score: 79 out of 100
