Brown-Forman, has announced the launch of the latest release from its award-winning Whiskey Row Series.

Old Forester 1924 (50% ABV) is a 10 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky, which unlike the previous four releases in the series uses a new mashbill that differs to the traditional Old Forester recipe; 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malted barley.

During Prohibition, more than 200 distilleries in Kentucky alone were forced to close. Old Forester, however, continued operations because the federal government issued it one of six permits to bottle existing whiskey stocks as medicine. In 1924, Old Forester acquired barrels from closed distillers, with different mash bills, and bottled that liquid as Old Forester. This special release commemorates that moment in time.

Old Forester 1924, is said to deliver notes of fudge, cocoa, marzipan, cured tobacco, rich oak and warm cinnamon on the nose, followed by notes of chocolate-covered graham cracker and cinnamon on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Melissa Rift. Master Taster at Old Forester, said: "We are honoured to commemorate this historical milestone with a new featured mash bill and a beautiful 10-year age statement. It allows whisky lovers to taste just how dynamic our brand can be while staying rooted in our rich history."

Old Forester 1924, is now available from select retailers across the US, for a RRP of $115.00.
