Classic Old Forester served single cask exclusively for Flaviar.

Old Forester has about as much tradition as you can get in a Bourbon. It is a single brand of Bourbon that has been continuously available for 145 years — most of that time from the same family of craftsmen at the same distillery. Interestingly, it was the first Bourbon to be available exclusively in sealed glass bottles. There was a lot of nefarious re-bottling and dilution going on and this was a way to ensure quality and integrity. Today it is owned by Brown-Forman, available in eight different varieties and is a sister Bourbon to Woodford Reserve.

We’ve been fans of Old Forester for a long time. So when we got the opportunity to partner with them on a single barrel release of the signature Bourbon, we jumped at the chance. Each single barrel selection yields between just 200 and 240 bottles. So this selection is strictly limited. We worked with the master taster Jackie Zykan to find a great cask of Old Forester Straight Kentucky Bourbon — the same Spirit that took the Gold Medal last year at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. So this make is the "best of the best" of Old Forester wonder juice. And it is bottled at a lovely 45% ABV because when you’re proud, you do not hide.

Smartass Corner: 
Old Forester is named after a "cooperative" physician who regularly prescribed it to his patients during Prohibition "for medicinal purposes."

Christopher,
So I decided to do a side by side of this against Old Forester Prohibition (115 proof). I get a better read on my whisky when compared with others. Although the Prohibition is of a higher proof, this Flaviar pick has got a way better nose! It smells absolutely delicious of caramels and vanilla exploding! The Prohibition gives me more of a spicy toffee. The flavor of the pick is smooth, just a little less than full of slight oaky/nutty caramels and vanilla. This one is definitely my favorite of the Old Forester line to date.
