Whisky Reviews for Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This has a really nice sweet nose all on chocolate, sugared coffee, cocoa beans and a touch of cedarwood.
    The palate is really spicy and initially quite sweet but then some stewed, fruit note fights with it, there is a slight metallic edge to it bit overall it is a good bourbon.
    This also improves with time in the glass.
    I am rubbish at describing bourbon flavours but this is really good, one of the best bourbons I have tried.

    This Old Forester was bottled for the Italian market at 80 proof. The label states DSP-KY-414 (Brown & Foreman's now closed Louisville distillery). This corresponds with the figure '77' on the bottom of the bottle, which means that this whiskey was bottled around 1977.
