|Whisky||Old Forester 1910|
Carmel on the tongue with a spicy finish. first smells of leather and hard oak barrels.
What it is:
Very warm with a smoky nose. Very spicy and smoky on the pallet with dried savory fruits ( figs, currants). Creamy with a thick mouth feel. Ethonol heavy finish with a lingering smoke after taste. This pour is very smooth and easy, with interesting flavors all the way.
What it isn't:
Like any Old Forester I have ever had.
Easy to find.
Worthy of all the hype and demand (IMO).
My favorite of the Whiskey Row series.
This pour is good, but leaves me wondering why the much better OF 1920 is on shelves and readily available, and this is almost at unicorn status???
It's worth trying, buying, savoring, and sharing...but not chasing. There are many $55 bottles that I prefer.
Smooth and buttery
very good, double oak stands out, very enjoyable oak flavor without bitterness.
Nice oaky bourbon wished they would have kept the proof higher
Probably my current favorite bourbon. disappointed I have to conserve the 2 bottles I got my hands on until more becomes available.
sweet and soft with heavy char and oak. not toasted oak but dry oak. no complexity. prefer Woodford double oak
Nose is outstanding with notes of cherries, cake batter and strawberries. The taste gets a bit overwhelmed with notes of char and wood tannins. It's a good one but not worth the money or hype
Dark cherries, cake batter, strawberry
Wood tannins, charred sugar, vanilla, medium and smooth mouth feel
Charred oak, tobacco
one of the best forester
Very drinkable. Perfect for night cap/dessert but maybe too sweet as an everyday sipper.
Very tasty. Double cask definitely comes through
Like drinking liquid butterscotch. Finish keeps going and going. I will be adding this to my collection.
decent not great, thin viscosity. Medium finish
smokey wood fire sweet corn
thin, nothing stands out. kinda weak.
medium finish best part of the whiskey.
caramel, vanilla, pipe tobacco
salt, caramel and honey, mahogany, champagne
Strong oak. Bold bourbon. Long long finish. Where brown forman went subtle on the woodford double oak, they went bold on this double barrel.
