Birthdays often come with surprises, but the 2019 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon is no surprise when it comes to the exceptional quality and iconic nature that defines Old Forester distilling. This perfectly aged bourbon is a wonder to behold, with a nose that reveals rich layers of baking spices, fresh oak shavings, sweet banana bread, and vanilla bean frosting with hints of cinnamon and summer fruits. On the palate, warm white pepper and delicately spiced rye blend with sweet vanilla caramel cream and ripe melon soaked in wildflower honey. The finish is long and satisfying, with lingering notes of oak, leather, and fruits. As always, Old Forester delivers a round and fully expressive whiskey that is sure to impress any bourbon lover.
