To mark the occasion of the grand opening of Old Forester Distilling Co. in June 2018, Brown-Forman has decided to re-release a historic bottling. The President's Choice is a single barrel bourbon release selected by current president and fifth generation family member, Campbell Brown, under the guidance of Master Taster Jackie Zykan. The bourbon will typically be aged 8 years (exact age will be written on each bottle) with the proof in the 110-120 range. The President's Choice will be sold at the Whiskey Row distillery in Louisville and in select Kentucky retailers.

Tasting Notes

"Vanilla and crème brûlée lead on the nose, with brown sugar, graham crackers, and a medicinal kick in the background. The palate opens big, with baking spices and caramel upfront, followed by dark chocolate, molasses, char, and burnt toast. The finish is rich and sweet, with oak, cacao nibs, peanuts, cinnamon, and long-lasting, voluminous vanilla. "
