OLD FORESTER 1897 BOURBON BOTTLED IN BOND
This 100 proof expression is the second release in our Old Forester Whiskey Row Series and was specially crafted to honor the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. After the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 to be labeled as Bottled in Bond, whisky must be the product of one distillation season, one distiller and from one distillery. The concept behind the Act – the idea of “sealed-in quality” – was something that Old Forester – America’s First Bottled Bourbon – introduced in 1870.
“Warm and inviting on the nose with a resinous, piney note balanced by worn oiled leather, peach cobbler, and pink peppercorn. Bold and peppery, decadent yet maintains fresh orchard fruit flavors. Absolutely stunning.” 93 Points 2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge
