    I wouldn’t call Old Forester a “cheap bourbon.” While the cost of a bottle of Old Forester is less than some bourbons, Old Forester is a very good bourbon and is considered one of the favorites by many mixologists that we know in Louisville and Kentucky. Those of us who are bourbon lovers are lucky that bourbon continues to be one of the greatest values for whiskey in the world. I recommend you give it a try!

    Sorry, inexpensive. Anyway, my beef is with the phoned-in press release not the booze. If Old Forester is as good as you say, why not emphasize the QPR rather than come up with an unoriginal cocktail for a commercial holiday that has nothing to do with the rich history of bourbon?
