This classic Bourbon is a bartender favorite for a very good reason.

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.

Everyone has their own "perfect" set of specs for their Bourbon. But when it comes to ABV, we like 46% for sipping and 50% for cocktails. That little extra oomph makes a big difference if you want to taste the Whiskey when it’s holding up the other ingredients. Old Forester Signature Bourbon is a bartender’s favorite at one hundred proof. The mash bill is high corn at 72% with 18% rye and 10% malted barley — delivering rich caramel and toffee notes that marry perfectly with the known universe of mixers. And it just added a Double Gold medal from the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition to its long list of awards.

Smartass corner: 
Old Forrester is named after a "cooperative" physician who regularly prescribed it to his patients during Prohibition "for medicinal purposes." The "Signature" in the Bourbon’s name is a tribute to George Garvin Brown — the original founder of the brand.

Not a bad daily sip.

Frank,
Forester with a bit of a bite. Rather new to the OF product line. I like it just fine with a heavy pour, a 2” cube and a little water.
 
Beau
Beau,
I definitely lean towards ryes, and this one delivered. It's the perfect rye burn and flavor and at 100 proof is great neat or on a cube.

Austin,
Hits all the classic bourbon notes, such a great bourbon for the money!

Solid, smooth good flavor. I find it appealing
 
Clayton
Clayton,
Solid dram at 100 proof, but unspectacular. Compared to the 1920, I actually prefer this, but wish it had the same proofing. I’ll have to try the 1910 and 1890.

Cory,
It’s hot for my liking.
