Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style
This 115 proof expression is the third release in our 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.
This is where Old Forester 1920 takes off. Sweet and hot at the same time, this comes in with a powerful first sip laden with brown sugar, graham cracker, and vanilla. That quickly gives way to oak and dark fruit (plums, cherries) on the mid palate, and then to black pepper and oak on the rear of the tongue.
