Old Forester 1910 Old Fine Whisky, 46.5%

Price: $65 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

A nose of cherry candies, rose water, spiced molasses cookie, candied nuts, clove, and nutmeg make a lovely first impression. On the palate it feels a bit soft, with butter pecan ice cream, banana, and toffee, as it strikes a balance of sweetness and spice. The finish veers toward earthiness, with tobacco barn and warming chili spice.
