Birthday Bourbons



2007 Birthday Bourbon

This vintage is a balance between the 2006 and 2007 expressions. While 2005 had heavy cinnamon and baking spice notes, and 2006 had a pronounced mint note, 2007 represents the best of these two years, with a mint note that cools the warm cinnamon spice.

Tasting Notes

Color

Brownish orange – like a fine cognac.

Aroma

Sweet with rich dollops of caramel and vanilla on a cinnamon-raisin bun. Sharp cinnamon is cooled by a hint of mint as the bourbon opens up.

Taste

A balance of dark caramel and rich vanilla coat a ripe apple character

Finish

Warm, long and very clean.
