I wanted to make a thread separate from the Today's Bourbon thread for the purpose of asking questions, looking for recommendations, etc. Figured it would be easier to reference that way.

To start...for my next purchase, I was considering Old Forester 1910 or 1920. Anyone tried these?

Great idea! Been looking to pick up another bottle or 2 to try to round out some flavors. I have my Woodford double oaked and just picked up a Sazerac rye today. Only had a few ryes and so far have enjoyed them all. My goal is a variety of flavors between bottles, for me it’s tough to pick up a bottle that tastes pretty similar to what I already have. Always open to suggestions if anyone has any.

That's the exact same thing I'm going for. Trying to cast a wide net. I am kinda going for three open bottles at a time: one wheated, one high-proof, and one plain old 90-100 proof.

So far I can strongly recommend:

1) Wilderness Trail Yellow Label
2) Bulleit Wheated
3) Knob Creek Single Barrel 9 Yr
4) TX Blended Whiskey (if you're into lower proof, almost desserty stuff)

Old Forester has been my jam lately. Both 1910, and 1920 are their best offerings, and I try to stay stocked on both.
1910 is toasted, and delicious at 93 proof. 1920 is a flavor bomb with a decent punch at 115 proof. My recommendation is get both.

Thanks! There's still empty room in the cabinet. :cool:

They didn't have the 1920 when I swung by, so I grabbed a bottle of 1910. We shall see! My original intent was "just to look" but we all know how that goes...

Hope you enjoy it Carlos. It's a bit light for my palate but you might dig it. I know I like the higher proof Old Forester stuff (1920, Barrel Strength...)
