Old Forester Signature, 50%

Price: $26 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Brown-Forman has made Old Forester since 1870. It sure is easy on the eyes: beautiful tawny hues against the light of sunset. Think Southern bakery. Lots of caramel, vanilla, freshly baked cornbread, nutmeg, cherry pie, and cocoa. Then add the spiciness. These delicious flavors don't last long, making me wonder how it would fare with just a couple more years in the barrel.
