Distillers Description:

Batch 01/03 is 125.6 proof, comprised of 46 barrels, and is the “fruit bomb.” On the nose, we’re told there’s “maple syrup and perfectly ripe orchard fruits, apricot and plum,” with “açaí and black current” on the palate and a finish that’s “graham cracker, subtle peppermint, long well-rounded spice, moderately dry.”

Old Forester 150th Anniversary Bourbon honors George Garvin Brown’s original process, and represents a collaboration between Master Distiller Chris Morris and Master Taster Jackie Zykan. This expression consists of 150 barrels chosen specially by Chris, made from wood seasoned 150 days. Jackie then personally tasted and batched all 150 barrels into three very distinct flavor profiles and proof points showcasing the taste variations among barrels depending on where they rest in the Old Forester barrelhouses. The bourbon is presented in an amber glass bottle, reminiscent of the hand-blown glass of George’s day and sealed in a commemorative keepsake canister.

  • Aroma: Dill and bright orange peel, hint of light brown sugar
  • Taste: Sweetens in the middle to melon and pine
  • Finish: Medium dry, tingling green peppercorns, rosemary, grapefruit peel, and lingering anise
