1897 Bottled In Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Brown-Forman’s Old Forester is a name synonymous with profoundly delicious premium whiskey, and their 1897 Bottled in Bond (BiB) Kentucky straight bourbon is nothing short of a revelation! Crafted from a mash bill containing 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley, Old Forester 1897 BiB is classified as NAS bourbon with a matured barrel strength of 100% proof. Originally released in 2015, this robustly hued bourbon offers up a nose full of rich vanilla and darkly roasted coffee over sweet fruits and oak. The palate is a blend of dark fruits and spice with layers of caramel, vanilla bean, and warmly toasted oak shavings.

At long last getting around to another audit. I've had this container for half a month at this point yet simply getting around to giving it a conventional tasting. Directly off the bat this is a forceful fine whiskey! The 1897 in the name is a gesture to the year the packaged in bond act was passed. Similarly as with all Kiddie apron bourbons this is the imperative half ABV and is at any rate 4 years of age in spite of the fact that there is no age proclamation on the container. In the glass this bourbon is an extremely decent dull golden shading. Twirling makes a thick slick covering that produces legs gradually. The nose is magnificent brimming with oak and caramel with practically zero consume. There is some vanilla and zest notes also however generally simply that astounding sweet oak. The sense of taste is business as usual with sweet caramel vanilla and toffee enhances just as some warmth. The consume is observable as it ought to be with a 100 proof measure however not cruel by any stretch of the imagination. Smooth. There are some cinnamon and peppery zest notes too with a genuinely thick mouthfeel. The completion is genuinely long dry and oaky. This is definitely not a mind boggling bourbon. This is whiskey easy however done well indeed. The oak tones in this bourbon are probably the best I've tasted just makes you need more. It's a fabulous sipper and truly great on the rocks too. I will spare this for those occasions I need something straight no blending for this jug. At $50 it is a smidgen expensive however justified despite all the trouble as I would see it. 4.5/5. Good health!
