Old Forester 117 Series: Rum Finish

Today, Old Forester launches its latest expression Series 117: Rum Finish.

Historically, commercial trade on the Ohio River has brought a variety of barrel-aged spirits to the dock behind Old Forester Distillery on Whiskey Row. This expression involves finishing Old Forester in rum barrels that have been matured for at least four years, bringing rich tropical fruit, coconut and custard notes, according to the brand.

Rum Finish bottled 95 degrees inside 375mL bottle.

“By aging our signature bourbon in these rum barrels for approximately six months, we complemented and accentuated the sweet aromas of Old Forester with hints of brown sugar and molasses, enhancing its rich character.” Old Forester Associate Head Distiller Caleb Trigo said:“Rum Finish is a sweet continuation of the series that whiskey lovers and rum drinkers will love.”
