The Second Segment(Technical details that are mostly available on google search)
Old Forester Distillery has been around since 1870 and wiki says it is the first bourbon sold exclusively in sealed bottles. 
Old Forester 100 proof- The product label reads "This whisky is distilled by us only, and we are responsible for its richness and fine quality. Its elegant flavor is solely due to original fineness developed with care. There is nothing better in the market"
I disagree with the last part, there are much better and cheaper whiskies out there in the market like Old Turkey.
