The Old Forester Birthday Bourbon is a very special bottle that only comes but once a year. The reason this bottle is annual and not released more often is because it is brewed specifically to be released on a particular date. This date being the birthday of the founder. On September 2nd every year, master distiller Chris Morris crafts the Birthday Bourbon that is vintage-dated and particularly fantastic for this momentous occasion. It is hand selected from one specific day of production. It’s a one of a kind bottle that is essential for any bourbon aficionado. The uniqueness of this bourbon could not be overstated. From the fact that it is only released once a year to the fact that it is released on the day of the founder’s birthday, and that it is hand-picked for its flavor and character to reflect the special day it is released. It is the ultimate in rare, handcrafted bourbon. This is also the fifteen year anniversary of this particular practice, making it even more special for bourbon enthusiasts. It has received unprecedented acclaim and both national and international whisky honors.
Now, let’s talk nose. The scent of the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon is complex. Among the notes are cinnamon and spiked oak. They balance each other in a hearty dance between deep and sweet. Additionally, there is a hint of nutty chocolate and dark caramel. They do a similar tango that balances out this incredible concoction. The taste is full of mulled fruit character and spice, along with notes of bright citrus peel. It is warm and toasty in flavor with the perfect amount of fruit and citrus bite.
