75 General Review of Old Forester 1870 Original Batch

Old Forester 1870 starts off with a very mild nose comprised of mainly black pepper and a little bit of tobacco. I am not discerning much other than the traditional Brown-Froman oak and a slight fruitiness on this tasting. This bourbon almost seems like a milder version of Statesman. 

The palate tastes very one-dimensional and seems to reflect the nose. There's very little viscosity. 

The finish Is much warmer than one would think, considering the mild palate and aroma.

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
