Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2019
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted November 11, 2019Honey, brown sugar, spearmint hints, orange zest on the nose. Palate is complex, I’m getting dark chocolate and hints of cherries, oak is heavy. Light heat going down on the finish. Give it a minute or two to open up, it’s a clash of flavors. Edit: think 1910 on steroids - this is it
