Priceless Bourbon with noble ancestry

Sometime in the 1850s, an entire street in Louisville’s center was dedicated to Bourbon production, called Whiskey Row. Soon after that, the first Bourbon in sealed glass bottles was introduced and they called it Old Forester, named after Dr. William Forrester, the local pharmacist and a good patron of George G. Brown, the Whiskey maker. Now, who names their new product after their favorite customer anymore? Then, in 1910 (hence the name on the bottle), Old Forester had a fire in the bottling line, so in order to save the precious amber potion, they moved the batch into new, charred oak barrels. When they fixed the distillery and tried the stored Bourbon, their minds were blown. Not literally, obvs – the flavors were incredible.

Today, Old Forester 1910 is the final release in the Whiskey Row Series, and it emulates that rescued Whiskey in being moved to a heavily charred (almost burned) second barrel. When it’s mature enough, it’s bottled at 93 proof. Old Forester 1910 is a wonderful mad scientist’s experiment that delivers a unique and unprecedented flavor.

Ratings & Reviews
Justin
Justin,
One of my favs. The nose on this is vanilla and caramel deliciousness. Drinks smooth.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
As far as bourbon this is more on the dessert, after dinner, or with a cigar side. Good pour but very brown sugar, dark, caramels, and sweet. Definitely complex but a bit over hyped if I’m honest.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Really sweet. Almost a dessert whiskey. It is enjoyable, but not my preferred profile. Wife likes it more than me.

Bryan
Bryan,
Appearance: deep dark amber Nose: creamy vanilla, candied artificial cherry Palate: strong medicinal cherry cough drops with creamy vanilla, slight cinnamon, chocolate covered raisins, and decent oak spice. Very deep and rich. Finish: clinging okay spice, the cherry falls off a little bit. Good balance. review done after uncorking on 4/19/2020. Update: 5/18/2020 After month of opening up. The nose is a less cherry that when you first open the bottle. The vanillas, and maples and more prevalent. Specifically I got a sausage McGriddle from McDonald’s. The cherry taste is still strong. Followed by good about of oak from the double char barrels. Finish is as out the same. Oak lingers quite a bit but nothing too overpowering.

Toffee, caramel, and oatmeal raisin and plum undertones on the palate. Dark chocolate and black pepper take over on the finish. Smooth with short tail. During the late 19th century, an overwhelming number of distilleries throughout the United States were still not aging their whiskey. As a result, some retailers would add juices and syrups to sweeten the whiskey, while others would add acid and tobacco to give their whiskey its signature, amber hue. In 1870, George Garvin Brown — a young pharmaceuticals salesman from Kentucky — saw the need for a consistently high-quality whiskey that would remain unadulterated after distillation. After saving $5,500, Brown and his brother opened the doors to J.T.S. Brown & Bro. Distillery and began distilling bourbon. Unlike other distilleries at the time, Brown aged his bourbon, which was named Old Forester, in oak casks and bottled it in a sealed glass bottle to ensure authenticity and quality. Since its introduction in 1870, Old Forester has been on the market continuously, even during Prohibition, when it continued to be sold for medicinal purposes. It is the only bourbon continuously distilled and marketed by the founding family before, during and after Prohibition. In October 1910, a fire caused the bottling line to be shut down for an indefinite period of time. This whisky was stored in new, charred oak containers to rest until the line could be repaired. The result this unfortunate event created something entirely unique: an expression of Old Forester that has undergone a second barreling in a lightly toasted, heavily charred barrel.

Oh so close to being my favorite OF, 1920 by a nose
 
Erik
Erik,
A double oaked bourbon, very rich and creamy, tons of sweetness. Not quite as good as the 1920, but a clear 2nd best bottle of Old Foresters whiskey roy for me.

It's a bit punchy on the front but smoother by the end of the glass.
 
Christopher

One of my favorites. Consistently tasty, rich like candy, dark with hints of oak. Amazing with bourbon barbecue potato chips.
 
Jessica
Jessica,
Love the oaky sweetness and viscous mouth feel. One of my favorites!
 
Eduardo
Eduardo,
Flavor spiral is *spot on* for this one. I got some rock candy up front with notes of cherry syrup, and the mint on the finish was a pleasant surprise. This one did not change my life, but it certainly made it a lot better!

Richard
Richard,
Tastes great, super drinkable, really opens up with a splash of water. So good I immediately went and bought a second bottle. I would not mind having this permanently on hand, if it were more readily available.

One of my absolute favorites!! Always keep a bottle on hand!
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Love the oaky flavor. You can feel the heat on the tongue but not in the throat. Only bad thing I can say about this is that you just can’t find it in stock anywhere.
 
guest
guest,
Lots of red fruit, a complete 🍒 bomb with vanilla notes layered throughout. Almond extract, oak, all-spice/baking spice and an uncomfortably dry finish. The finish is just a massive miss, I just don’t get this one...?
 
guest
guest,
Super smooth and easy on the palate. Sweet with a chocolate overture. This is far and away the best of the series.
 
Rod
Rod,
Sweet, smoky and very nice on the palate. Definitely one to have on hand.
 
Gary
Gary,
Can't say enough about this bourbon, among the best I've had. In the top 5 for sure.
 
Tim
Tim,
Sweet at first, oakey, oily, butterscotch after first sip and throughout, not to spicy after first sip but oily. Maybe a little too much oak or butterscotch.
 
Rick
Rick,
This was a great bourbon smooth,a light char and a little oakey. Easy drinking I got notes of Carmel. This was one of the best bourbons I have had, I will definitely buy this again!
 
Robert
Robert,
Amazing smooth char flavor. This one flew off the shelves and is now hard to find around me.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
I really liked this bourbon. Has all that I look for.
 
George
George,
Ranks up there with the 1920. Try a 50/50 mix with the 1920 for “something special”.
Albert
Albert,
Like the mix idea.
Jared
Jared,
This whiskey has tons of flavor. The nose is unique and very inviting. The palate is a bit of a mixed bag. At first it’s sweet, then the oaky-char really sets in. Smokey flavor then takes over, which is nice at first but the smoke really dominates the finish. I bought this for $48 at a big liquor store. It’s worth it to me at that price because I find it a unique arrow in the flavor quiver. However, I don’t consider this a super-frequent sipper because the smoke is so dominant. If you’re a collector like me, throw it on the bar. You’ll like having it to dip into!
 
Mathew
Mathew,
Probably one of my favorites. The sweetness is perfectly balanced and provides a very well rounded drink. Love making coffee cocktails with this one.
