An annual limited edition Bourbon aged ten years and dripping with quality.

Old Forrester 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.

The annual Birthday Bourbon release has become a fun and very tasty tradition. Each year since 2002 the distillery has released a special, limited edition Bourbon to celebrate the birthday of the distillery founder — George Garvin Brown — on September 2. Each one is a gem.

2020 marks the 150th year of the distillery George founded, so they had to do something special. Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2020 is pulled from ninety-five, hand-selected barrels that had aged for a full decade. The mash bill is classic Forrester — 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. And this gorgeous dram is delivered at 49% ABV.

Forbes proclaimed that "This Could Be the Best New Bourbon Release of 2020," and they could be right.

Appearance / Color
Rich Copper

Nose / Aroma / Smell
On the nose, the scent is surprisingly floral with orange blossoms, magnolias, vanilla, pastries, caramel, and a bit of mango.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is rich and satisfying with crisp butter toffee, coconut cream, banana, sultanas, oak, and brown sugar.

Finish
The finish is long and leans toward oak sugars, leather, and warm rye spice.

Overpriced and average bourbon...

Overpriced and average bourbon. Not sure what al the hype is about but not worth it at all. I do like the bottle design though.
