Old Forester 2012 Birthday Bourbon
For this bourbon, the malt ratio was increased in our mash bill before putting it into the fermenter, which resulted in a noticeably nutty spirit. Once barreled, the barrel was stored high up on the 4th floor of Warehouse H, where it experienced a balanced maturation. This lofty location gave an unusual amount to the Angel’s Share, resulting in a richly intense flavor concentration.
Aroma: Reddish orange. Rich and elegant with sweet notes of caramelized orange peel, honeysuckle, vanilla, marzipan and toasted marshmallow oak.
Taste: Full of ripe fruit character with oak sweetness, warming spices and almond nuttiness.
Finish: Long and warming with a delicate honey combed oak note.
