Old Forester’s Standard Rye Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Old Forester Rye stays true to our standards of quality, consistency, and balance while delivering on value as only Old Forester can,” said Zykan. “The spicy, yet floral complexity of this expression offers a completely different flavor profile than its bourbon cousin. At 100 proof, it plays beautifully in cocktails, but also stands up boldly on its own.
Old Forester 100 Proof Rye will be offered nationwide at a suggested retail price of $22.99, parity priced with Old Forester 100 Proof Bourbon.

Taste: Spice awakens immediately leading with sharp black pepper and cinnamon stick, rounding out with notes of dried dill and baked apple
Finish: Allspice and peppercorn introduce a long and dry finish which ignites with pine, anise and bright lemon zest
