Old Forester 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.
Brownish orange – like a fine cognac. 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. A balance of dark caramel and rich vanilla coat a ripe apple character.
Warm, long and very clean.
