  • Excerpt: If we were restricted to a Twitter-length response, this one would likely be summed up by saying simply: while we love sweet notes in our bourbon, this is a bit heavy on the sweets for us.

  • Excerpt: I took my first sip and I thought “Wow! That is a fine whisky.” Upon taking my second sip, I liked it even more. Both smooth and complex at the same time, with a gentle warmth that stays with you all the way down.

  • Excerpt: That cinnamon note becomes cinnamon raisin bread on the finish, which lingers nicely with touches of caramel and campfire smoke.

  • Excerpt: I hate to say it, but the Old Forester 1910 Old Fine Whisky is my least favorite Old Forester I’ve ever had. I know that some people love this one, but there some slightly off and conflicting. That aroma though, that’s the saving grace.

  • Excerpt: Despite not quite living up to the same bang for your buck that Old Forester 1920 delivers, it does succeed in delivering a unique sip that’s very enjoyable in its own right.

  • Excerpt: Old Forester is really laying it on thick, so to speak. Sure there’s nice maturity but it seems a bit forced.

  • Excerpt: In the final analysis, though, 1910 really does stand on its own. And considering both the depth of the experience and the price, it’s an absolutely great buy.

  • Excerpt: There is a lot going on in this whiskey that begs you to keep coming back for more. Although quite different than the third and fan-favorite 1920 Prohibition Style Whiskey Row Series release, 1910 ended the series with a bang in my honest opinion.

  • Excerpt: This isn't for me. Its one dimensional, disappointing in the palate and finish, and generally not too complex.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a double barrel bourbon release from Old Forester as an entry in their vintage line of expressions. It is first matured in a normal bourbon cask, then moved to a second, highly charred barrel.

  • Nose:

    Really prominent maple, brown sugar and clove. Sweet melon, light banana. Baking spices. Honey.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium. Sort of muted. Sugar, light clove, some spice. Not a lot here. Oddly dry and oaky.

  • Finish:

    Short, lots of oak here. Cocoa. Sawdust. Weirdly musty. Overwhelming fake cocoa and oak.

  • Overall:

    This isn't for me. Its one dimensional, disappointing in the palate and finish, and generally not too complex.

  • Score:

    3
