Old Forester’s annual limited-edition Birthday Bourbon is back and will hit shelves on Sept. 2 in celebration of Old Forester founder George Garvin Brown’s birthday, its parent company Brown-Forman said.
Aroma: A nuanced balance of white floral notes, magnolia and citrus, spiced with vanilla, buttery leather and cocoa powder. Countering the spice are sprinkles of brown sugar, white chocolate shavings, caramel drizzle and hints of tropical fruit.
Taste: Caramel and brittle toffee lead as the tropical character blooms into banana, mango, coconut flakes and macadamia nut.
Finish: Long and delicately drying with a hint of anise.
