Old Forester 1997 12 Year Old Birthday Bourbon is the 2009 release of this special edition from the distillery of the same name. Old Forester (owned by Brown Forman) makes the Birthday edition each year to honour its founder, George Gavin Brown. This is the sixth release.

It is vintage-dated bourbon. Such bourbon whiskies are rare and it makes each release of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon a true one-off that will never be replicated again.

The 2009 release was distilled and put in barrels in 1997 where it spent 12 years in specific locations at the distillery’s warehouses.

Just 98 barrels were used to craft the bourbon that went on sale. It was bottled at ABV 48.5% which is 97 proof, a deliberate salute to the year of distilling.

Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2009 is warm, rich and slightly sweet with an intense, long and smooth finish. You will not have had anything exactly like it before, nor will you be able to get anything exactly like it again.
