9 – Old Forester single barrel
Every fingerprint is unique. The same is true for every barrel of bourbon. Old Forester Single Barrel has bottles from one individual barrel, so there is no other bourbon exactly like it.
Brown-Forman announced in early 2019 they would be “enhancing” their retailer single barrel program. Old Forester’s 90 proof single barrel will no longer be available, instead replaced with a 100 proof and barrel strength single barrel versions. Bottles will also sport a redesigned bottle label that more closely resembles the brand’s design since 2015. Jackie Zykan, Old Forester master taster, said in the company’s press release, “…we wanted to be able to share how special some of these barrels are when the product inside is tasted in raw form.”
