Old Forester 1870 Original Batch Bourbon 45% 700ml
In 1870 George Garvin Brown created Old Forester on Louisville, KY’s, famous Whiskey
Row. In honor of that milestone year in bourbon history, we have crafted a tribute - Old
Forester 1870 Original Batch - the fi rst expression in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series.
1870 Original Batch echoes George Garvin Brown’s original batching process. Back then,
Brown batched barrels obtained from three distilleries to create a consistent flavor profile.
To emulate that process today, we also select barrels from three warehouses, each barrel
originating from a different day of production, with a different entry proof and a different
age profile. The three expressions of Old Forester are then batched together and
minimally filtered to craft Old Forester 1870 Original Batch.
AROMA - Clove notes spice up a medley of citrus fruit (orange, grapefruit, blood orange), all softened with a delicate, sweet, floral honeysuckle character.
FLAVOR - Baking spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) fl ow into a citrus fruit mix and shortbread sweetness.
FINISH - Soft, with lingering fruit and spice character.
