Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2011

Unread postby JakeDPR » Fri Aug 03, 2012 12:32 am

My gal picked me up a bottle for my 30th birthday Sunday, and I am quite impressed. I noticed this isn't reviewed at all here, has anyone else tried it yet? I may have to give reviewing a shot!

I have tried it and I like it but not as much as the 2010 (which I thought was superb!). The finish on the 2011 has a little bit of bitterness from the wood tannins which makes it unbalanced in the opinion.

I will try to get one up this week. I guess I will have to try the regular Old Forester as a control bottle haha, that is how I will explain it to my girl at least...
