  1. AnnEm scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The nose is super multi-layered, in the mouth it is neat and pleasing, but then comparatively "simple".
    • Nose
      88 88
      Creamy texture with a lot of roasted aroma. Umami, Maggi cabbage, soy sauce. Very ripe, special fruit (just before putrid) - pineapple or papaya, maybe guava? Banana with white chocolate. Rubber flooring. Something fresh / cooling (eucalyptus / menthol - lamp oil). Algae (without the association of salt). Something herbaceous. Freshly cut roast pork. Shoe polish on new leather shoes. Unroasted almonds.

    For me, the Old Forester is an oaky and dry bourbon. Good and pleasant to drink.
    • Nose
      A warm sweet vanilla and caramel with brown sugar fill the air. Slightly pungent alcohol is included.
    • Taste
      Spicy and tart than the nose suggested. Woody notes, dry and astringent with a slight burn. At the back comes vanilla and sweet popcorn.
    • Finish
      Medium length, warm with light bitter aromas of wood and oak. Clear caramel on the exhale but quite dry and astringent.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Fruity, fresh, a little mint, also a hint of alcohol, with spices and oak.
    In the mouth, a decent start with nice sweetness, fruit, oak and spices, the finish shows a lot of oak, astringent, tart peppery.
    In my opinion also a nice sipper for on the side, but I really like the plus in oak and the fresher notes here.
