Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Brown-Forman Distillery ~ Old Forester Distilling Co.

AROMA: Sharp and sweet, with a strong floral character that swirls with hints of mint, rich tobacco leaf, and vanilla. TASTE: A touch of oak and pine provides a strong underpinning. Sharp at first, but softens quickly, with hints of oak, sweet corn, and rye grain character. Spicy, with soft vanilla and light orange notes. FINISH: Long, warm, and slightly drying. Nice level of sweetness.
