  1. Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    I tried this last night (newly opened) and could only connect with the richness and considerable heat—which I like. Retried it again tonight and seem more capable of expressing its complexity. Chocolate, leather and dark, dried fruits on the nose. Rich, chocolaty palate with considerable, though pleasant, burn. More fruit. Dried nectarines? Long, long finish with lingering sugar and fruity spice.

    Bourbon Enthusiast store pick. Barrel 14-751. 111.2 proof. Tobacco and leather on the nose, with a bit of cherry and cinnamon too. Big mouth feel with big cinnamon. Long, complex, peppery finish.—that occasionally throws a musty note. When I opened this bottle I wasn’t so fond, but it has grown by leaps and bounds as I return to it.

    Nose full of oak and sawdust, but pay attention and you’ll catch a whiff of dark cherry. It’s the opposite of full on the palate. Feels like it’s almost not there. No sweetness. Very dry with more astringent feel than taste. Finish is long with a spice bite on the edges of the tongue.

    Cinnamon and cherry syrup nose. More cherry on the palate—and lots of heat. Long sharp finish that lingers and varies cinnamon, cherry and even a little grape. Not a stretch to say you’ll bump into some jolly rancher flavors as you sip through your glass.

    The Rogue Stouted is boldly Oregonian. It’s deeply FUNKY and dank. On the nose and pallet, you definitely get a double dose of the stout, but it’s got another level that’s pure Oregon musty funk with some cheese-like footiness. As a tasting, it’s definitely unique and interesting, but I probably wouldn’t sit and drink several glasses.

    Definitely some apple or pear notes on the nose, and subtle wood and leather. The palate brings light spice and light sweetness. Flavors seem to really grow if you’re patient with the dram. Early sips had a spicy, shorter finish, while later ones gave up longer, bolder, chocolatey finishes.
