Ernest Hemingway. And according to a picture of his Cuba home in Vanity Fair's Oct. 2011 issue, Old Forester was one of the bottles in his living room. I don’t know if it was one of his favorites or if it was left when he died because he didn’t like it. But it is a decent whiskey and he is more than a decent writer.
Four Roses bourbon was found at Faulkner’s home in Oxford, Miss., according to an Oct. 14 New York Times article.
