Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

#3 in the Whiskey Row Series. Intense medley of cherry preserves, drippy caramel, dark chocolate. Dark caramel coasts layers of malt nuttiness, sweet graham cracker, green peppercorn and coriander with just a hint of cedar. Finishes with tart apple, toasted marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker. D&M Tasting Notes

As with other Old Forester expressions, there is no age statement for 1920, and the mashbill is presumably the same: 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. Distillery Notes 

#3 in the Whiskey Row Series

57.5% ABV 

At the stroke of midnight on January 17, 1920, it became a federal crime to manufacture, transport, and sell intoxicating liquors in the United States. The passage of the 18th Amendment and the subsequent Volstead Act shuttered many distilleries and put them out of business; many permanently. One of the few distilleries that had enough juice already aging in warehouses to receive one of six permits* granted for the purpose of supplying medicinal whiskey was Louisville, Ky.-based Brown Forman, producer of Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky. For Old Forester, receiving the permit ensured that the label started in 1870 would continue in perpetuity. 

Old Forester 1920: Prohibition Style — celebrates the longevity of the brand and its historical significance during Prohibition.
