Old Forester Statesman 95 Proof Bourbon 47.5% 70cl
Originally launced as a limited edition tie-in with the 2017 movie 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle', Old Forester decided to keep the release as a permanent part of the portfolio following critical acclaim.
Statesman is a blending of hand-picked casks from the warmest sections of their warehousing - the higher temperatures increase interactivity between liquid and wood, resulting in 'faster' maturation. It doesnt have an age statement on, and initial research suggests this contains whiskies as young as under 5 years old plus those close to 10. THe mashbill appears to be the standard Old Forester combination of 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% barley.
That high corn element gives an intially sweet note, with cherry syrup and banana bread coming to the fore. But then a pleasant spiciness develops, growing exponentially as it moves to the finish to end on a lingering dry oak and cinnamon feel.
The Statesman is one of the easier drinking Bourbons out there - but the gently expanding spiciness at the end makes things very interesting. I've never been much of a fan of the Kingsman movie, but I am a big fan of this whiskey!
