My favorite daily pour. Exceptional tasting notes and not difficult to find at a reasonable price.

when i found Old Forrester 1920 i fell in love. for me it is the quintessential over proof bourbon. since, i have tried a few more the old forrester labels, pretty wide variety, and havent been disappointed yet. 1920 is great for a nice old fashioned, sazerac, manhatten, or on a big hunk of ice. its a real treat

Very nice whiskey. Hits every spot on my tongue just right; that hint of sweetness followed by a nice bite. 115 proof is a great strength that leaves a tingle but doesn't doesn't burn. I keep coming back to this bottle time and time again, easily one on my favorites.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
