Old Forester Birthday 12 Year Aged (2018 Release) Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 700ML Tasting Notes

Nose: Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2018 is full of treats -- nothing too surprising other than the sheer variety of them. For starters, the aroma brings salted caramels, vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and a hint of char smoke hovering above it all.

Palate: The body is a solid medium, not too thin, but not rich and chewy. The highlight of the bourbon is its conclusion, but thankfully it is a lengthy one. It's tangy featuring roasted peach, cherry, and orange zest along with warm barrel spices tying it all up.

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