This 115-proof expression is the third release in the Old Forester Whiskey Row series and celebrates the brand's continued distillation during Prohibition. For 13 years, the production, transport and sale of alcohol was strictly prohibited. However, Old Forester was granted a permit to continue distilling on Louisville's Whiskey Row.
Old Forester 1920 expression represents a barrel sample that company president Owsley Brown I would have batched at the beginning of Prohibition. It has nose of an intense medley of cherry preserves, drippy caramel, dark chocolate, thickened maple syrup and seasoned oak spiciness. The taste is composed of dark caramel coated layers of malt nuttiness and sweet graham cracker all warmed by green peppercorn and coriander spice brightened with a hint of cedar. Tart apple crispness gives way to a long smoky finish full of toasted marshmallow, chocolate, and graham cracker sweetness. (from Old Forester)
