Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Brown-Forman Distillery ~ Old Forester Distilling Co.

AROMA: An intense medley of cherry preserves, drippy caramel, dark chocolate, thickened maple syrup, and seasoned oak spiciness. TASTE: 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. FINISH: Tart apple crispness gives way to a long smoky finish full of toasted marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker sweetness.

Additional Notes

The Volstead Act of 1920 brought Prohibition upon the United States. After this act was introduced, only six permits were given in Kentucky to continue bottling and selling bourbon but only for medicinal purposes. Old Forester was one of the six. Old Forester is the only bourbon continuously sold before, during, and after Prohibition. Old Forester 1920 pays homage to the survival of Old Forester.
