  • Intro:

    This is a single barrel of Old Forester spirit that was selected by a local retailer. It was matured in Warehouse G, on Floor 2, and was bottled at 45% ABV. I really wish this was bottled at cask strength, but I gave it a go, regardless.

  • Nose:

    Bananas, vanilla, clove, oak. Not a ton going on here, I could probably mistake it for Signature or Jack Daniels SiB blind.

  • Taste:

    Medium, bananas, toffee, caramel, vanilla, cream, oak. Nice body, but its pretty squarely an Old Forester product. Banana is unmistakable.

  • Finish:

    Short, uninspiring, vanilla, clove. Mild heat.

  • Overall:

    Great nose and palate, nonexistent finish. I really enjoyed some aspects of this, but it didn't seem off the mark from a variety of other Old Forester products that already exist. Cask strength might have made this special. In the end, its good and fine, if not remarkable.

  • Score:
