2019 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Old Forester 86 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon (United States), 43% abv, $19.99

89
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Bright grain expressions bringing together a mighty sweet corn element together with a crisp and spicy rye declaration. Sweet ginger with the nutmeg punch, cantaloupe with black tea. More lemon custard than creme brulee, this classic bourbon harmonizes depth and brightness of its grains.
