Old Forester 86 Proof


In 1870, Old Forester became America’s First Bottled Bourbon when founder George Garvin Brown revolutionized the industry by being the first to put Bourbon in a glass bottle. Five generations and nearly 150 years later, Old Forester delivers a genuine Bourbon experience with 86 and 100 Proof at the core of the family. At 86 Proof, Old Forester delivers a fresh and bright flavor profile perfect for sipping neat, on the rocks, with a splash of water or in a classic cocktail.

In the glass, this whiskey is the bright copper of a new penny, with moderately-spaced legs. On the nose, it has a typical bourbon profile: vanilla, honey, and caramel, along with a candy fruit note resembling a cherry Jolly Rancher. After some time in the glass, a touch of spice appears. On the palate, it’s fairly soft, with more honey, vanilla, and fruit, and a woody backdrop.
