In 1870 George Garvin Brown created Old Forester on Louisville, Kentucky’s, famous Whiskey Row. In honour of that milestone year, Old Forester 1870 Original Batch, the first expression in the Old Forester Whiskey Row series, was crafted. 1870 Original Batch echoes George Garvin Brown’s original batching process. Back then, Brown batched barrels obtained from three distilleries to create a consistent flavour profile. To emulate that process today, barrels are selected from three warehouses, each barrel originating from a different day of production, with a different entry proof and a different age profile. The three expressions of Old Forester are then batched together and minimally filtered to craft Old Forester 1870 Original Batch. Bottled at 45%. (Bottle size 750ml)

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

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

Finish: Soft, with lingering fruit and spice character.
