The Details

In a Nutshell

Created by George Garvin Brown in 1870, this is one of few brands made legally during Prohibition.

Tasting Notes

Reddish burnt orange. Rich vanilla and chocolate caramel, complex and mature soft fruit medley with hints of citrus and traces of malt; adding water, fruit notes explode into mature oak. Complex, sharp, dry chocolate-cocoa swings into sweet, sappy oak flavours, with grain and hay notes, hints of fruit linger in the background. The finish is sweet, light then quickly drying.

Production Notes

Old Forester Classic 86 Proof is made in the same classic style originated by founder George Garvin Brown in 1870, with a higher rye content that gives it a uniquely full, rich, genuine character. Made to the original mash bill of 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malted barley. Old Forester is twice-distilled, first in a column still, then again using a thumper still. The new whiskey is transferred to new oak barrels and matured for a minimum of 2 years in a specially designed rickhouse.
