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.
