Old Forester Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky is a bold and spicy rye whiskey produced in Louisville, Kentucky. Aged for at least four years, it features a complex flavor profile with notes of cinnamon, dried fruit, mint, and rye spice.

Description

Old Forester Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky is a relatively new offering from the brand, but it has quickly become a favorite among rye whiskey fans. Made with a high rye grain mash bill, it is aged in new, charred oak barrels for at least four years. This aging process gives the whiskey its signature bold flavor profile. On the nose, you’ll find aromas of rich brown sugar, magnolia blossom, and hints of sassafras and candied lemon. The taste is where the rye spice really shines, with notes of black pepper and cinnamon leading the way. There are also hints of dried dill and baked apple, which add complexity to the flavor profile. The finish is long and dry, with lingering notes of allspice, peppercorn, pine, anise, and bright lemon zest.

Overall, Old Forester Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky is a well-crafted and delicious rye whiskey that is sure to please fans of the genre. It is bottled at 100 proof, which means it has a bit more kick than some other rye whiskeys on the market. However, the high proof is well-balanced by the rye spice and other flavors, making for a very smooth and enjoyable drinking experience.  Whether you neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail, Old Forester Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky is a great choice.
