Old Forester Introduces Its Highest Proof Birthday Bourbon To Date

Jun 12, 2019

Category: Vices

Old Forester is one of the oldest Bourbon proprietors around, and with more than a century of prestigious experience, the company’s flagship whiskeys have become a staple among enthusiasts. These days, the brand has become even more well known due to its annual limited-edition releases — with 2019’s celebratory example bringing a mix of unique notes, an exceptionally high proof, and refined vision to the company’s trademark spirit.

In 2002, the Old Forester decided to release its very first celebratory bourbon marking its founder’s birth. The aptly named Birthday Bourbon has been an anticipated annual release ever since — garnering a reputation as a sought-after collector’s item and selling at prices ranging from $500 to $1,500. This year, the company is releasing its very first 105 proof whiskey — the highest proof to-date for the annual spirit — in a limited, 120-barrel run. This 11-year-old vice — complete with rich oak spice, blackcurrant, caramel cake, and white floral notes — is sure to be a fan favorite that will likely fly off the shelves at $100 a bottle.
