American Whiskey - Bourbon
The US is the spiritual heartland of Bourbon and rye whiskey, popularised around the world by classic cocktails from the Old Fashioned to the Manhattan.
Originally created to mark the release of 2017 movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Old Forester Statesman is a bold, unapologetic Bourbon from the famed Kentucky distiller. Bottled at 95 proof (47.5% abv) and made using whiskey matured in barrels resting in the warmest spots of Old Forester’s warehouses, this is a Bourbon that delivers rich sweetness with a dose of gingery-clove spice.
Serving Suggestions: Definitely try Old Forester Statesman in an Old Fashioned.
A big nose full of sticky, sweet treats like birthday cake covered in marzipan and vanilla frosting, and an indulgent sticky toffee pudding. It’s drier and more refined on the palate which turns to buttered rye bread, new leather and a bold, peppery ginger and clove spiciness that lingers on and on.
