2016 Birthday Bourbon

The 2016 Birthday Bourbon barrel selection commemorates the 15th anniversary of the first-ever release. Unlike various previous selections, where barrels were drawn from different warehouses and/or floors and locations within a warehouse, the 2016 release has uniquely matured together on the same floor within the same warehouse. This year, all of the bourbon matured in a very warm location, giving it a deep, rich oak forward personality.
