Press Release: Old Foresters Announces 117 Series: Rum Finish

Today, Old Forester® released its latest expression in the 117 Series: Rum Finish.

Historically, commercial trade on the Ohio River brought a variety of cask-aged spirits to the wharf behind Old Forester Distillery on Whiskey Row. This expression features the finishing of Old Forester in barrels that have matured rum for a minimum of four years, bringing notes of rich tropical fruit, coconut, and custard to the profile

Rum Finish is bottled at 95-proof in a 375 ml bottle. The suggested retail price for the 375 ml bottle is $59.99 and the suggested retail price for the two-bottle set is $119.99.

By finishing our signature bourbon for approximately six months in these rum barrels, we have complimented and accentuated the sweet aromatics of Old Forester with hints of brown sugar and molasses, emboldening its rich character,” said Old Forester Assistant Master Distiller Caleb Trigo. “Rum Finish provides a sweet addition to the series that whiskey aficionados – and rum drinkers – will love.”

Rum Finish marks the latest expression in the 117 Series, which launched in 2021 .

Old Forester 117 Series: Rum Finish is available starting today at the retail shop at Old Forester Distillery Co.

Tasting notes:
Nose:  Buttery toffee mingles with banana custard, coconut and fresh apple.
Palate: Enters light and quickly expands with rich tropical fruit led by more banana, coconut & toffee supported by dry barrel spice and tannins.
Finish:  Long, lazy and dry with a compelling dynamic of creaminess and spice surrounded by plenty of sweet fruit and red licorice.
