Old Forrester Bonded Split DSP Review

This is a NAS expression from Brown-Forman referred to as Split DSP due to the listing of distillation at DSP 354 and bottling at DSP 414 when Brown-Forman was moving facilities. It’s bottled at 50% ABV.

Nose: Loads of spices up front with french vanilla and molasses. Oak is fairly minimal but presents a bit of a musty character overall.

Palate: Wet cardboard with brown sugars and heavy oak.

Finish: Dry and short with notes of peanuts and oak.

Rating: 82/100

Value for the money: I think these go for $100+ on the secondary, and they’re not worth that. I’d pay maybe $20 at a store for a bottle.
