Old Forester 1920

Old Forester’s Whiskey Row series cemented new interest in a heritage brand many enthusiasts largely ignored. One might argue Birthday Bourbon as an exception, though most rarely see that annual release. No biggie. Who needs Birthday Bourbon with Old Forester 1920 around?


Pour: Old Forester 1920
Proof: 115
Age: at least 4 years
Color: rosy copper
Nose: vanilla bean, charred banana, dense oak
Taste: toasted caramel, brown sugar, woody spice
Finish: long w/ waves of molasses, chocolate, and baked cinnamon


Overall: A deliciously bold bourbon with a robust profile all its own. If you’re looking for a whiskey with the style and character of a fancy limited edition, but don’t want to pay a fortune or waste time finding it, Old Forester 1920 damn sure delivers.

Rating: Ol’ Fo-Sure!

    1. Thanks David. I’ll consider adding after the fact, but the concept here is that Twitter is the primary output source and the blog is more of an archive. Reviews are shared via threaded tweet. It’s a reverse model in comparison to most whiskey blogs. But again, thank you.
