Old Forester 2011 Birthday Bourbon
This release was matured in barrels crafted from Northern and Ozark terroir sourced white oak. This resulted in the development of some rich fruit notes (Ozark) and deep, dark char (Northern) characteristics. The barrels were stored in Warehouses H and I, on the 1st and 6th floors. These locations exposed the barrels to the extreme heat and cool which resulted in a rich, complex maturation profile.
Creamy toffee. Rich in dark caramel and chocolate notes with layers of toasted hazelnut, leather, blackberry fruit and spiced with hints of clove and cedar.
A complex array of red plum, blackberry and hints of citrus fruit covered with a layer of dark chocolate caramel and sharp honey underpinned with clove spice, anise, cedar and a faint hint of mint.
Big and warming with a subtly sweet oak and fruit character.
