    • OLD FORESTER 1870 ORIGINAL BATCH WHISKEY

      To emulate George Garvin Brown’s original batching process, Old Forester 1870 Original Batch is crafted by selecting barrels from three warehouses, each barrel originating from a different day of production, with a different entry proof and a different age profile that are then batched together and minimally filtered.

      AROMA: Clove notes spice up a medley of citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit, blood orange), all softened with a delicate, sweet, floral honeysuckle character.

      TASTE: Baking spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) flow into a citrus-fruit mix and shortbread sweetness.

      FINISH: Soft, with lingering fruit and spice character.
