46.5% alcohol/Vol 93 Proof
Old Forester top to bottom is one of our favorite lines. With everyone’s most coveted being the Birthday Bourbon and the darling being 1920. Add 1910 as the new favorite. Old Forester 1910 is a double-barreled bourbon whisky, similar to the process being used by other brands. Two of my favorites enlisting this process are Jefferson’s Twin Oaks 16-year and Michter’s double-barreled “toasted” bourbon and rye, both of which are expensive and hard to find. The two things that make me most excited about 1910 is that it’s not limited edition and is supposed to be readily available and it’s priced at $50. If you enjoy the double-barrel process and taste profile, I think you might have a new weekly drinker. Thank you, Old Forester!
The appearance is a medium amber with long legs, think Emma Stone, you’ll want to make this pour your new best friend.
The nose is initial sweet oak, followed by vanilla cake with frosting topped with roasted pecans.
The initial taste is sweet toasted oak, very easy to chew on. The other flavors are caramelized vanilla, marshmallows, and black currants. The finish is a sweet char with mostly toasted oak lingering. For people who enjoy double-barreled flavors, this bottle is a sawed-off shotgun from close range. You can’t miss.
