Old Forester The President's Choice (Barrel No. 1), 55.5%

Price: $90 Issue: Fall 2018 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Lovely concentration of flavors, including whiffs of vanilla cream soda, clover honey, bananas Foster, and a dash of pepper define this selection of barrels by Old Forester president Campbell Brown. Zippy and bright, with lemony verve, peach puree, and warming ginger. The finish smacks of pecan, bitter citrus oil, and peppery spice, with the exquisite oak content in a supporting role.
