Old Forester Releases Whiskey Tie-In for Kingsman
We’ve seen two or more fictional characters or ideas being merged into the distinct context of a movie’s narrative. But hardly have we seen an iconic brand tie-in with a movie which has worked out flawlessly. However, Old Forester has brought to you a unique blend, perfected to a “smooth 95”, from hand-selected casks. Not only is this whiskey unique because of its spicy nose, buttery taste and its intense finish, but also because the Old Forester Statesman has been brought out as a tie-in with the upcoming movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle. This straight bourbon whiskey has been crafted in partnership with Twentieth Century fox and Marv films.
The brand claims that the barrels used to create Statesman are located in the warmest places in the warehouse. The summer temperature allows the wood of the barrels to expand and release more flavour into the whiskey and thereby giving it its unique taste and texture. The nose comprises of oak spice and clove with an undertone of raw vanilla. Pepper, cinnamon bark and sharp citrus dominate its taste. The finish is a spicy eucalyptus that dims into caramel and orange cream.
Overall a very intense range of flavours, almost similar to the amount of intensity once could expect from the sequel of Kingsman. Be prepared to witness the action and momentum this film has to offer and also this beverage which will be available across stores from the 1st of august at $55 a bottle. To commemorate it all the mayor of Louisville, Greg Fischer, has declared the film’s release date as Statesman day. That’s definitely something to toast to.
