Old Forester 1910 Old Fine Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky

On 22nd October 1910, a fire on the bottling line halted production of Old Forester. Mature whisky ready to be bottled, instead was stored in a secondary barrel. What emerged was a delightful whisky, remarkable enough to become an entirely new expressions – Old Fine Whisky. Today mimicking this historic bottling, this unique expression of Old Forester has undergone a second barrelling, granting it exceptional character, a smooth and sweet flavour and a clean, crisp finish. Entering the second barrel at a low 100 Proof allows more of the sweet wood sugars to dissolve into the whiskey. 1910 Old Fine Whisky is the fourth and final expression of the Whisky Row Series, presented at 93 Proof.
