Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2015 Edition, Image courtesy Old Forester/Brown-Forman.This is the 14th annual release of the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon, but the first one to be released at 100º proof (50% ABV). It comes from a single day’s production on June 13, 2003, and the nose is dry and oaky with notes of pipe tobacco, roasted almonds, caramel, vanilla, and soft spices. The taste is warm and spicy with cinnamon, clove, warmed apple cider, honey, caramel, and brown sugar notes. The finish is dry and oaky with a hint of pecans. (September, 2015)
