Old Forester 1910 Old Fine Whisky

Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

Tasted December 5, 2018
4.0 out of 5 stars
Very smooth bourbon, and very sweet. give this to any of your friends that say they aren't whiskey drinkers. I actually like to "blend" this with the 1920 and the statesman. it kind of creates a "poor man's Birthday Bourbon."

    @Brian-Locker I think you could. I initially started messing around with this before the 1910 existed. I thought the statesman helped to smooth out some of the “rough edges” of the 1920. I think the 1910 could accomplish the same. But the Statesman is my wife’s favorite Old Forester so we keep it in the mix.

    @Andrew-Cavy-Cavallaro I like this blending idea! I heard someone else say they just blend the 1910 and the 1920. Would this achieve the same desired effect? Or is the statesmen needed? What would be missing without the statesman? (I don’t own the statesman and hoping to not to have to buy it to make this work...)

    @Andrew-Cavy-Cavallaro Thanks, Andrew, appreciate the reply. This seems completely doable, plus you get to enjoy up to 4 bourbons if not doing all bottles for the custom Birthday bourbon. I’ll see if I can do this in the near future. Really taking a recent interest in old forester offerings. Thanks again!

    @imwithbourbon I just do equal parts of all 3. I find the 1920 a bit harsh on it's own, so the statesman helps tone that down, but the statesman is a bit thin tasting to me, so the punch of the 1920 is nice. Then with the addition of the 1910, it adds that special sweetness that is pretty unique to the birthday bourbon. It's obviously not quite the same, but since I can easily find all 3 of those at any given liquorstore, it will do.

    Interesting what you said about blending these and getting a poor mans bday bourbon. How do you split the 3 of them?
