    And yet it has changed over the years. For as long as I can remember the label has said something about the quality of the contents of the bottle having been "developed with care", the "with care" being underlined; however, if you look at prohibition-era medicinal bottlings or even 19th century advertising that shows the label, that same phrase is rendered "developed by age", with every word being underlined.

    Re: Old Forester label question

    The Old Forester website (see the link provided by mrdctalyor) states that the new label was introduced in 2003. There's a whole page of info devoted to it.

    Like the majority here, I prefer the old white and gold paper label. It's just classier. But the bourbon, of course, remains a great favorite.
