Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Old Forester Distilling Co.
750 ML (Standard)
Dark caramel coats layers of malt nuttiness and sweet graham cracker all warmed by green peppercorn and coriander spice brightened with a hint of cedar.
An intense medley of cherry preserves, drippy caramel, dark chocolate, thickened maple syrup and seasoned oak spiciness.
Tart apple crispness gives way to a long smoky finish full of toasted marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker sweetness.
The Volstead Act of 1920 which initiated Prohibition in the USA granted permits to six distillers in Kentucky to continue to bottle bourbon for medicinal purposes.Through one of these permits, Old Forester continued to be produced as medicinal Whiskey on Louisville's famed Whiskey Row.It is the only bourbon continuously sold by the same company that has been available for sale before, during, and after Prohibition.uring this time, all whiskies had to be bottled at 100 Proof with a barrel entry proof of 100, the 'angel's share' would have created a 115-proof Whiskey after maturation.To pay homage to this era, Old Forester presents 1920 Prohibition Style Bourbon at 115 proof to represent the rich flavor profile this bourbon had nearly 100 years ago.
