US brand, Old Forester Bourbon, is marking its 150th anniversary with three new limited-edition batches to be released next month
Batch one is bottled at 62.8% ABV and comprised of 46 barrels. On the nose, it has notes of maple syrup, ripe orchard fruits, apricot and plum, with a finish of peppermint and spice.
The second batch (63.2% ABV) comprised of 48 barrels and provided an aroma of cherry cordial and raspberry preserves.
Finally, batch three carries an ABV of 63.4% and is comprised of 43 barrels. It presents dill, orange peel and brown sugar on the nose, followed by a medium-dry finish with tingling green peppercorns, rosemary, grapefruit peel, and anise.
The new whiskey comes in an amber glass bottle, reminiscent of the hand blown glass used by Brown, and will be packaged in a commemorative gift box.
“This special Bourbon has been in the works for some time now, and while it is exciting for our family and colleagues, I hope the larger Old Forester family – the Bourbon lovers and fans – will appreciate it just as much,” said Campbell Brown, Old Forester president and fifth-generation Brown family member.
