Old Forester 11 Year Birthday Bourbon
Warm and rich with inviting baking spices that are immediately noticeable. Inhaling deeper reveals oak, banana bread, vanilla, cinnamon bark, and a touch of summer fruits. While there is a hint of ethanol - which is unusual for Birthday Bourbon - it truthfully is this noses only slight flaw holding it back from being perfect. The scents mingle well and are fantastic overall, foreshadowing the sip to come.
