Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond Whisky
Old Forester Distilling Co.
750 ML (Standard)
Heavy on sweet flavors like honey and caramel, with notes of dark fruit and oak.
Sweet honey and vanilla and a hint of smoke are immediately noticeable, along with salted caramel and warm allspice.
A distinct smokiness pops out, and oak predominates in the warm, moderately long finish.
Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond is crafted to honor a watershed moment in bourbon history-the U..Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. This expression follows the Bottled in Bond standards that whisky must be aged in a federally bonded warehouse for at least four years, the product of one distillation season, one distiller, and from one distillery, and bottled at 100 Proof. The concept behind this regulations-the idea of 'sealed in quality'-was something Old Forester introduced in 1870, as America's First Bottled Bourbon.
