Old Forester 150 Year Anniversary Bourbon Batch 3 (126.8 Proof)

Category

In 1870, George Garvin Brown changed the spirits industry forever when he sealed and sold his whisky – Old Forester – exclusively in a glass bottle. Each bottle was adorned with his signature, a personal guarantee of the brand’s quality and consistency. Today, 150 years later, Old Forester announces the upcoming release of Old Forester 150th Anniversary Bourbon to commemorate his act of ingenuity, honor his legacy and celebrate the history of the First Bottled Bourbon.

There were 3 batches made for this historic, one-time bottling. This is one bottle of the last batch, Batch #3.  It’s a monster that the whiskey world is gaga about, and I can certainly understand why. I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that it was bottled at 126.8 Proof! A little bet less fruit driven, more spices and caramelized sugar aromas here, all of which are very exciting. The heat is there but it’s hidden well, behind some creamy butterscotch, dark chocolate and rye spice.    Of course on the finish of a monster that is 63.4% you’re gonna have a little heat, but it’s so smooth and dull that it’s the kind of burn you welcome. This is a gem of a collector’s item for whoever snags this one up!

Original price was: $850.00.Current price is: $699.00.

I have one standalone bottle from Batch 3 of the 150th Anniversary bottling. A lot of people in the whiskey world will tell you that this one is the most unique and exciting of the three batches. But I’m not so sure it’s not just because it’s the strongest at 126.8 Proof. Either way, it really is a killer bottle. A little bet less fruit driven than the first two batches, this one has more spices and caramelized sugar aromas, all of which  blend together well and make you want to dive in. The heat is there but it’s hidden well, behind some creamy butterscotch, dark chocolate and rye spice. Of course on the finish of a monster that is 63.4% you’re gonna have a little heat, but it’s so smooth and dull that it’s the kind of burn you welcome.
