The bourbon captivates the eye with its radiant, amber-gold hue. The clarity and richness of the color indicate the quality of the distillation and aging processes.
An intricate balance of elements greets the nose. Dominant notes of caramel and vanilla, a nod to its American oak maturation, are supplemented by undertones of toasted grains and a hint of citrus zest. Fainter whispers of cinnamon and mint add complexity to the bouquet.
The palate is robust yet nuanced. Old Forester Classic 86 Bourbon opens with the warmth of dried fruits—think dates and raisins—before yielding to a medley of spices, namely nutmeg and allspice. The middle palette exudes oak and caramel, generating an exceptional mouthfeel that's simultaneously full-bodied and smooth.
The finish is admirably long-lasting, featuring an evolving set of impressions. Initial waves of caramel sweetness transition into a slow, warm fade accented by a touch of tobacco and leather.
