Old Forester 2005 Birthday Bourbon

For this bourbon, we used a different malted barley supplier. The new barley produced a slightly lighter bodied spirit than usual. Barrels were stored on the 7th floor of Warehouse H, where they were exposed to extremely warm temperatures and dry conditions. The lighter bodied spirit and warehouse condition resulted in a higher than average Angel’s Share loss that concentrated the rich toasted and charred oak notes.

  • Aroma

    Brilliant orange-red. Rich with incredibly sweet vanilla, caramel and maple syrup notes that evolve into a layer of creamy butterscotch.

  • Taste

    Deep and full of light mint and dried fruit notes. Smooth with hints of cedar and oak laced with spice covered over with a delicate candy store selection.

  • Finish

    Very clean and apply crisp with little oak effect – very light for a 12 year old bourbon. Gently warming.
