  • Synopsis:

    The Presidents Choice is a great choice, an oaky look at Old Forester distillate that is proofed a bit aggressively but delivers excellent flavor in droves.

  • Intro:

    This is a rare and limited release from Old Forester known as The Presidents Choice. This is 9 years old, bottled at a liberal 58.15% ABV and was done so without any coloring or filtering. Lets dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, oh so rich. Raisins, honey, toffee, banana bread, zucchini bread, pungent cream and caramel. Wow.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate, delivering lots of pepper, banana bread, honey and some astringency. The proof is nice but this drinks a bit hotter than it should. Oaky structure, lots of tannins.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, a bit hot still, but oaky and delicious. Tannic and dry, loaded with raisin, toffee, tobacco and vanilla.

  • Overall:

    Delightful and unique. Drinking a bit hotter than it should be, but the oak walks a fine line perfectly without misstep.

  • Score:

    7
