Old Forester® Debuts 1924: A 10-year-old Bourbon and a New Mash Bill

Old Forester® has unveiled its latest release in the Whiskey Row Series – 1924. This 10-year-old bourbon, with 100 proof, features a new mash bill (79% corn, 11% rye, 10% malted barley) different from the traditional recipe. The release commemorates a significant moment in Old Forester's history during Prohibition when it obtained permits to bottle existing whiskey stocks as medicine. The 1924 release honors the 100th anniversary of this innovation, marking Old Forester as the only bourbon brand produced before, during, and after Prohibition. The Whiskey Row series now includes five installments, each representing a distinct moment in the brand's 153-year history. 
  • 1870 Original Batch
  • 1897 Bottled in Bond
  • 1910 Old Fine Whisky
  • 1920 Prohibition Style
  • 1924 10-year-old
Old Forester 1924 offers tasting notes of dark graham cracker color, with aromas of fudge, cocoa, marzipan, and cured tobacco over rich oak and warm cinnamon hints. The flavor profile includes chocolate-covered graham cracker with cinnamon, and the finish features hints of spice and graham cracker crumbles. The bourbon is 50% ABV (100-proof) and is priced at $115, available nationwide.
