Old Forester Birthday 12 Year Aged (2017 Release) 95.4 Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Notes

Nose: Burnt caramel, sweet vanilla, and a hint of spice come forward against a backdrop of seasoned oak. Sense a bit of charred oak, layering in some depth on the nose. It’s a notably delightful aroma, creating a welcoming introduction that entices deeper exploration.

Palate: Charred oak and a healthy dose of spice hit first. They’re followed by chocolate, as the bourbon coats the insides of my mouth. As it lingers, there’s a trace of dark fruit, but it’s hidden well behind the initial flavors. It’s very good overall, and at 96 proof the intensity of the flavors is just about right, though there’s a part of me that wants a bit more.

Finish: It ends with a nice long finish as chocolate, spice, and charred oak taper off.
