Good morning everyone and a happy last (regular season) LSU football gameday to you all! Not too long ago I saw a post on social media about the old fashioned cocktails at Mouton at White Star Market being fantastic and being made with Old Forester, so when I saw some Old Forester on the shelf when out running errands last weekend I decided it was a good time to grab some and give it a try.
Old Forester has been around since 1870 and makes the claim to be the first ever bottled bourbon. It's distilled in Louisville, Kentucky and is owned by Brown-Forman, one of the largest American companies in the alcoholic beverage industry. Among their brands are Jack Daniels, Woodford Reserve, Coopers' Craft, Korbel, and many more throughout the industry. The company started in Louisville with the Old Forester label and obviously has grown significantly since then.
|Old Forester Classic 86 Proof Bourbon|
This particular whiskey is the Old Forester Classic 86 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. It's the base expression of Old Forester bourbon, and as usual I gave it a first try neat. The aroma is pretty strong, a burn stronger than expected for 86 proof with notes of oak, vanilla, and a floral character. The taste is sharp as well, with a noticeable alcohol burn and a good bit of sweet corn flavor to go with the oak. Honestly, I'm not a fan of this one as a neat sipper.
After a glass of Old Forester neat, I checked on what I had on hand to make a cocktail and gave it a bastardized attempt at an old fashioned, with some cherries and simple syrup. As a cocktail bourbon, this definitely comes closer to hitting the mark, the strong flavors come through but blend well with the rest of the cocktail to give a distinct bourbon flavor without being lost in the mix.
With that, the regular season editions of #wakeywhiskey is over, so let's all hope for an LSU win tonight, and look forward to some holiday and bowl game wakey whiskeys in the near future!

The thing is, if you do get into them (and have something to offer), you’ll face limited competition, and if you know your marketing, you will flourish.ReplyDelete
