Old Forester Releases Rye Single Barrel Nationwide
Consumers have been hoping for another barrel-strength whiskey, and Old Forester has delivered.
“The Old Forester Rye Single Barrel delivers on the same balanced and unique flavor profile of our 100 proof expression, only amplified and in unfiltered, raw form,” Master Taster Jackie Zykan said.
What to Expect:
Color: Rich terracotta
Aroma: Dessert forward, creamy vanilla and lemon custard alongside rich caramel and dark brown sugar
Taste: Full-bodied with a base of ripe orchard fruit, subtle cinnamon stick, dried dill and hazelnut
Finish: Lengthy and spice-driven, with peripheral black pepper and underpinnings of green anisette
Old Forester Rye Single Barrel will be available starting June 1 at the retail shop at Old Forester Distilling Co. and nationwide for $79.99 in limited 750mL quantities.
