This 115 proof expression is the third release in our Old Forester Whiskey Row series and celebrates the brand’s ability to be continuously sold during Prohibition. For 13 years, the production, transport and sale of alcohol was strictly prohibited. However, Old Forester was granted a permit to continue to be sold on Louisville’s Whiskey Row. The 115 proof expression represents a barrel sample that company president Owsley Brown I would have batched at the beginning of Prohibition.
Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Whiskey received a 91 rating from Whiskey Advocate in December 2016.
Bottle Size: 750ml

“The perfect proof. Rich in color, aroma, and flavor.” - Fred Minnick, The Whiskey Advocate
During this time, all whiskies had to be bottled at 100 Proof. With a barrel entry proof of 100, the "angel's share" would have created a 115 proof whiskey after maturation. To pay homage to this era, Old Forester presents 1920 Prohibition Style Bourbon at 115 proof to represent the rich flavor profile this bourbon had nearly 100 years ago.
