This latest release follows on from the launch of Old Forester Rye in 2019, which was the first new recipe from Old Forester in nearly 150 years.

Old Forester Rye Single Barrel, is said to deliver notes of creamy vanilla, lemon custard, caramel and dark brown sugar on the nose, followed by notes of ripe orchard fruit, subtle cinnamon stick, dried dill and hazelnut on the palate.
