Raided Score: 71 Publication: The Bourbon Finder 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. Read Full Review Raided Score: 91 Publication: The Whiskey Wash 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.

Read Full Review Raided Score: 82 Publication: The Whiskey Jug 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.

Read Full Review Raided Score: 82 Publication: Distiller Excerpt: Old Forester is really laying it on thick, so to speak. Sure there’s nice maturity but it seems a bit forced.

And considering both the depth of the experience and the price, it’s an absolutely great buy.

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.

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.
Really prominent maple, brown sugar and clove. Sweet melon, light banana. Baking spices. Honey.
Thin to medium. Sort of muted. Sugar, light clove, some spice. Not a lot here. Oddly dry and oaky.
Short, lots of oak here. Cocoa. Sawdust. Weirdly musty. Overwhelming fake cocoa and oak.
This isn't for me. Its one dimensional, disappointing in the palate and finish, and generally not too complex.
