The Old Forester Birthday Bourbon series always leaves bourbon aficionados eagerly anticipating the next release, and the 14th bottling of this limited edition run, the 2015 Old Forester B-day Bourbon, does not disappoint. This premium bourbon is aged for a minimum of 12 years and finished at barrel strength of 100 proof. The mash bill is a closely guarded secret, adding to the allure of this highly sought-after whiskey for collectors. The aroma is complex, with hints of drying tobacco, rich wood tones, warm oak, and dark raisins coated in chocolate. On the palate, layers of honey and wood are accompanied by notes of dried oranges and shelled nuts.
