Our Top 5 Liquors of 2023 continues…
The bottled in bond act of 1897 changed the way bourbon would be made and put in place higher quality standards that revolutionized the bourbon industry. The Number 4 – Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond is our lowest proof bourbon on our year end list coming in a 100 proof (50% ABV).
All the ingredients in a BiB bourbon are from one distilling season. The Old Forester 1897 Bottled in Bond has a nice sweetness to it with notes of stone fruits and plums. It’s well rounded with a classic oak finish and hints of vanilla.
