Old Forrester is celebrating once again, and we all get a present — Old Forester Birthday 2019.

Old Forester has about as much tradition as you can get in a Bourbon. It is a single brand of Bourbon that has been continuously available for 145 years — most of that time from the same family of craftsmen at the same distillery. Interestingly, it was the first Bourbon to be available exclusively in sealed glass bottles. There was a lot of nefarious re-bottling and dilution going on and this was a way to ensure quality and integrity. Today it is owned by Brown-Forman, available in eight different varieties and is a sister Bourbon to Woodford Reserve.

Since 2002, Old Forester has issues a very special limited release of their “Birthday Bourbon” to celebrate, well … the birthday of the distillery on September 2nd. It’s a fun tradition and it’s always a tasty treat. This year, master Distiller Chris Morris and Master Taster Jackie Zykan spent a few happy days in the rickhouses hand-selecting this year’s casks. They came up with 120 special-special barrels — which is the equivalent of one full day’s production — that aged eleven years on the second floor of warehouse #1. All Old Forester Bourbons use the mash bill of 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. And this year’s release is bottled at an impressive 52.5% ABV, which means that they didn’t use a whole lot of water bringing it to proof. Meet Old Forester Birthday 2019 and raise a glass to wish them a Happy Birthday.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It’s so new that no one has had a sip yet, but Old Forrester reports aromas of toffee, butterscotch, melon, and sweet cornbread (and we believe them).

The flavor profile is listed as rich oak spice, black currants, light maple caramel cake, and florals.

Finish
The finish is long and lightly sweet with mint and peppercorn.
