Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style
Old Forester // Kentucky, USA
Through a government permit allowing the production of whiskey for "medicinal purposes," Old Forester was one of ten legal distilleries operating during US Prohibition. Now, you won't have wear your best flapper dress or don a fancy top hat and travel back in time to try any whiskeys from such a dark and sober (legally speaking) era in the nation's past. Launched in 2016, this third release in the "Whiskey Row" series was created in resemblance to what Old Forester would have tasted like during Prohibition. It is bottled at 57.5% ABV.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"The nose is light and primarily sweet with subtle fruit, spice and oak notes and noticeable ethanol. The palate is hot, dominated by sweet barrel notes of smoke, caramel and vanilla along with holiday spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Medium-length finish with less heat fading into a pleasant dry and spiced warmth."
