The 2013 edition of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. Image courtesy Brown-Forman.The 2013 version of this annual release from Old Forester has a smooth and creamy nose with subtle spices, vanilla, honey, soft oak and cedar shavings, and a great maple syrup sweetness that comes out with time. The taste has maple and brown sugar notes at first, followed by a burst of cinnamon and touches of honey, oak, and vanilla. The finish is dry and spicy with cinnamon, oak, vanilla, and a hint of caramel. Very nice! (October, 2014)
