Old Forester 1870 Original Batch Bourbon

Old Forester 1870 Original Batch Bourbon 750ML     
Sku: 171184

IN 1870 GEORGE GARVIN BROWN CREATED OLD FORESTER ON LOUISVILLE, KY'S, FAMOUS WHISKEY ROW. IN HONOR OF THAT MILESTONE YEAR IN BOURBON HISTORY, WE HAVE CRAFTED A TRIBUTE - OLD FORESTER 1870 ORIGINAL BATCH - THE FIRST CRAFT EXPRESSION IN THE OLD FORESTER WHISKEY ROW SERIES.

BOURBON JUST DOESN’T GET MORE ORIGINAL.

Old Forester 1870 Original Batch echoes George Garvin Brown’s original 1870 batching process. Back then, Brown batched barrels obtained from three distilleries to create a consistent flavor profile. To emulate that process today, we also select barrels from three warehouses, each barrel originating from a different day of production, with a different entry proof and a different age profile.
The three expressions of Old Forester are then batched together to craft Old Forester 1870 Original Batch. This 90-proof bourbon will be minimally filtered, to honor the processes available to George Garvin Brown at that time.

TASTING NOTES

NOSE: Clove notes spice up a medley of citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit, blood orange), all softened with a delicate, sweet, floral honeysuckle character.
TASTE: Baking spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) flow into a citrus-fruit mix and shortbread sweetness.
FINISH: Soft, with lingering fruit and spice character.

Country: United States
Region: Kentucky
Type: Straight Whiskey
