Old Forester 1897 Bottled In Bond Bourbon Whiskey

The second in the Old Forester Whiskey Row Series, 1897 Bottled in Bond has been crafted to honor one of the most important moments in the history of American bourbon making, the 1897 Bottled In Bond Act. Passed with the sole aim of ensuring that each bottle with the mark possessed a sealed in quality, Old Forester was no stranger to this concept, as America's first bottled bourbon they had already been doing this as standard since 1870.

To be bottled in bond a bourbon must be crafted by one distiller at a single distillery and crafted over one single distillation season. This honorary 100 proof specially crafted small batch whiskey has a mighty reputation to uphold.

And in doing so it holds nothing back. The nose is confident and robust. Rich intense vanilla aromas are wrapped around sweet sticky caramel. These are interspersed with wafts of dark roasted coffee beans, well-spiced dried fruit and mature woody oak.

With such a powerful introduction in the nose 1897 Bottled In Bond steps up to the plate in its flavor profile. Sweet and deeply intense this heavenly liquid coats the tongue filling the mouth with the taste of spice and cake fruits. Oak notes tantalise and lead you on and are layered with thick, creamy caramel and soft sensual vanilla. The mouthfeel is sublime, smooth as silk.

Holding its own, it is as big and bold in the finish as it was in its introduction. 1897 Bottled In Bond sticks around and will keep you company long into the night.
