Welcome to the club. It’s like we don’t remember what a kick ass bottle OUGHT to be in the $50-$100 range. The finish is more leathery and woody. Sweeter and lighter than the 1920. This 1920 version is supposed to emulate what they made during prohibition. For 13 years, the production, transport and sale of alcohol was strictly prohibited. Launched in 2016, this third release in the "Whiskey Row" series was created in resemblance to what Old Forester would have tasted like during Prohibition.

Name: Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style Bourbon Proof: 115 proof / 57.5% ABV Age: No Age Statement Year: 2016 How I Drank It: Sampled neat in a Glencairn Glass.The bourbon sat for a few minutes to allow the juice to open up. The 1920 has a really unique nose,I would describe as earthy.i am really glad I tried it as I tend to migrate towards allocated limited edition bourbons but this one is readily available and I think it’s a real sleeper. Because of my experience with other Old Forester bottles, I was hesitant to try the “Whiskey Row” series. I still think the hype isn’t worth it. If you have not tried this one I highly recommend it. I would have guessed somewhere around 90 in a blind test. If I had one minor gripe, it would be that this expression likely started as normal barrels of Old Forester distillate, with a barrel entry proof of 125. Required fields are marked *. According to the neck tag on the bottle, “During Prohibition, only six Kentucky distilleries were granted permits to bottle bourbon for medicinal purposes. 1920 is my favorite easy-to-find bottle these past couple of years. The taste is where this one becomes impressive. Right after I swallow, desserty peanut butter and cocoa appear. While most distilleries shuttered during Prohibition, Brown-Forman received a federal license to continue making Old Forester for medicinal purposes. Gorgeous..unique..chocolaty…deep and complex…worth every penny and has a character unto itself. Great review. The influence of the double barreling is quite noticeable, and with a lower proof, the 1910 has less of a kick vs. the 1920.
