Review: Old Forester 1910

Old Forester 1910, Old Fine Whiskey, is another “double-oaked” bourbon, meaning after it’s initial aging time, it’s finished again in an extra barrel. OF1910 is finished in a toasted barrel, a hip new trend in the bourbon world, which adds some extra complexity. Here’s a quick review of Old Forester 1910.

Old Forester 1910 Review

Served neat in a Glencairn.


The toasted is oak is prominent, with some clear cherry and vanilla notes. Lingers with some caramel.


Toasted oak present again, giving it a lot of richness. Brown sugar and vanilla. Good complexity for a 93 proof bourbon.


Pretty short finish. The toasted barrel char comes through a little hot here, like cinnamon.

Overall Old Forester 1910 Review

This is a pretty polarizing bourbon, with ratings all up and down the scale. There are times I’ve tried Old Forester 1910 and really loved it, and other times I’ve poured a glass and it’s just fallen a little flat. Ultimately, I love the character of the toasted oak and double-barrel process. I’m more of a high-proof kind of guy though, so this lacks a bit of the punch I prefer. It’s a great bourbon, though, and if you’re a fan of whiskeys like Woodford Double-Oaked or Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel, then you’ll be nice and cozy with the Old Forester 1910. Overall, I think this a great bourbon.
