Old Forester 1870 Original Batch echoes George Garvin Browns 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 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.

Region Description

\"Bourbon\" Whiskey is a whiskey made predominately in Kentucky and must have more than 51% malted corn with malted barley to be distinguished as Boubon. There are two distinctive styles of Bourbon made; sweet and sour mash. Sweet mash is fermented over a couple of days while sour mash is fermented longer to eliminate sugar in the grain.
