Old Forester 1910 Extra Old

Old Forester 1910 Extra Old is the new limited edition of the brand’s 117 Series. For its making, Old Forester’s standard 1910 Old Fine Whisky is transferred to a second barrel to age for additional 18 months.

The meaning of the year 1910 is that on October 22nd of that year, according to the brand, “fire on the bottling line halted the production of Old Forester. Mature whisky ready to be bottled was instead stored in a second barrel. What emerged was a delightful whisky, remarkable enough to become an entirely new expression – Old Fine Whisky.”

“This release in The 117 Series is a curious exploration into the intensity of the proprietary heavily charred 1910 barrel,” Master Taster Jackie Zykan said in a prepared statement. “This liquid was allowed to rest for 18 months in this secondary barrel, extracting significantly more of the heavily charred influence.”

Old Forester 1910 Extra Old is bottled at 46.5 ABV (93 proof). It’s available in limited quantities while supplies last at the brand’s retail shop and in select states for an SRP of $49.99.
