flahute Posted June 11, 2022 Share Posted June 11, 2022 Sorry to be late for this month's selection! I was out of town at the beginning of the month visiting family in lovely Santa Fe. For this month we are going back to Old Forester but with a variation of their's we haven't done yet. You all know how much I love Old Fo 100 - one of my most consumed bourbons. Many of you also know how much I love the 1920 variation. It has been a very long time since I've had anything from the Whiskey Row series apart from 1920. In fact, I haven't had any of them since they first came out. My impression way back then was that while they were good, they did not represent enough value to me at the price point given what I could get with 100 and 1920. Well, some chatter about a month or so ago from a couple of you mentioned how much you like the 1897 so I decided to revisit. Well?.........shoot. Not sure if I have I have a slightly off batch but while this one starts out with a lot of hope it finishes really dry and tannic. I don't remember it being like this. Every time I've tried it I've followed with the 100 and liked it much better. Now, I don't doubt any of you who really like this one. I think that my palate is just not aligning with it and that's OK. So, those of you who really like this one - speak up and let us know what you like about it! My palate cannot be trusted with this one. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
