Old Forester 1910
Intro: 1910 Old Fine Whisky, Old Forester’s fourth and final expression in the Whiskey Row Series, is a double barreled Bourbon creating a smooth mingling of sweet oatmeal raisin cookie and milk chocolate, caramel corn, and evolving spice that lead into a refined, charred oak finish.
Review: UPDATE: Again, that pensylvaia dutch prick, Bodnar, came over and tried the 1910 with him and we picked up the best note of all in the nose, brown sugar mixed with butter! Remember when your mom would make cookies or desert and the base was brown sugar and butter? This is heavy in that smell and it is amazing!
The nose…ok listen, Brown Forman knows how to get the most out of the double barrel technique. This bourbon in particular has amazing aromas from the nose. They say oatmeal raisin and milk chocolate and I can’t speak to that per se but I will say it is amazingly smooth and sweet. JDub and I will be posting a podcast soon with our experience with it…if I can find the time and figure out how to post podcasts…
The first sip…here we go…no lip burn or mouth burn…slight oily texture but very nice. Ok, like the podcast, the first sip brought a chest burn, and this is the same. It’s not offensive but lets you know it is there. The double barrel is a unique flavor and in this case, it makes this bourbon amazing. It’s not just hints of chocolate or vanilla, it’s like candy in that regard. This is one of my all time favorite bourbons! Second sip…no chest burn this time, slight heat on the back of the tongue which I think has more to do with me gulping it. Third sip…it’s difficult to explain the candy bar flavor this bourbon brings, it’s like they threw some Lindt chocolate truffles in the barrel. Fourth sip…the nose again is like butterscotch for sure, if you have ever smelled OCD #5 it’s like that but the bourbon doesn’t taste like it was filtered through a bums anus. Oh man, this sip showed the butterscotch flavor, like a werthers original.
Is it worth the $?
Well I paid $55 plus shipping…yes it is worth it! It’s amazing. I don’t care what category of bourbon drinker you are, you will enjoy this. If you don’t…send me your leftovers!
