For the 12th consecutive year, Old Forester will commemorate the birth of its founder, George Garvin Brown, with a special release Birthday Bourbon. The 2013 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon is selected from a single day of production and crafted by Master Distiller Chris Morris. The whiskey is vintage-dated, so the character and flavor profile is unique to this particular release and will never be replicated.
Chris Morris provided some details on the bourbon, saying: “This year’s batch was selected for its robust presentation of flavors, which showcase vanilla bean and caramelized oak paired with deep layers of warming spices and a delicate nut character.” Sounds good to us.
The 2013 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon will become available in mid-August. The 97 proof spirit will be sold nationwide and will carry a suggested retail price of $54.99.
