Old Forester 117 Series "Whiskey Row Fire" Bourbon. Image courtesy Old Forester.This distillery-only release commemorates the 7th anniversary of the Whiskey Row Fire in downtown Louisville that did extensive damage to the historic building that now houses the Old Forester Distillery, and comes from barrels filled on July 7, 2015. The nose has notes of honey, cedar shavings, toasted oak, vanilla, and a hint of black cherries. The taste has fresh berries complemented by touches of brown sugar, honey, vanilla, and a hint of hazelnut. The finish is long with lingering touches of honey, vanilla, and oak. (July, 2022)
