Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond
Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond is crafted to honor a watershed moment in bourbon history - the U.S. Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. This expression follows the Bottled in Bond standards that whisky must be aged in a federally bonded warehouse for at least four years, the product of one distillation season, one distiller and from one distillery and bottled at 100 Proof. The concept behind these regulations - the idea of 'sealed in quality' - was something Old Forester introduced in 1870, as America's First Bottled Bourbon. Nose is robust, intense caramel. Taste is rich vanilla with roasted coffee notes, spiced dark fruit and mature oak. Mouth-filling. Sweet and intense. Finish of deep fruit, spice and oak notes layered over dark caramel and vanilla. Big and bold.
