A brand of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey produced by the Brown-Forman Corporation, Old Forester releases the latest edition in its coveted 117 Series. The Old Forester Extra Extra Old is a double-barreled bourbon that stayed in the second barrel for 24 months resulting in a bourbon of exceptional quality.
This expression was born from a creative and innovative experiment while staying true to the classic taste which sets Old Forester apart. Although I only joined Old Forester last month, this was one of the first new limited expressions I was honored to taste – and the extra long double barreling leads to an explosion of flavors. – Melissa Rift, Master Taster
The Old Forester Extra Extra Old is Old Forester 1910 expression that has aged in a second barrel for two years. Old Forester 1910 commemorates the October 22, 1910 distillery fire at 117 Main Street. A batch of mature whisky ready to be bottled was instead re-barreled in new barrels for removal due to the fire damage. What emerged was a full-bodied whisky, remarkable enough to become an entirely new expression – Old Fine Whisky. For Extra Extra Old, the brand left the 1910 whisky in the heavily charred secondary barrel for two years.
Old Forester Extra Extra Old is bottled at 93 proof and will be released in very limited quantities for purchase at the Old Forester Distillery and in online store. It will also be available at select Kentucky retailers. Guests visiting the distillery on paid experiences between December 13 and December 23 will be able to purchase a bottle, in accordance with the distillery’s special release policy.
