The 2021 Birthday Bourbon is bottled at 104 proof and is made up of 119 barrels, aged 12 years, and barreled on April 16, 2009. After showing exceptionally unique character during a tasting panel, we choose the 12-year-old barrels specifically for this year’s Birthday Bourbon.
A beautiful symphony of berry and dessert components. Red raspberry preserves join plump, juicy blackberries and dried strawberries to set the tone. Nestled in a bed of dried herbs and balanced with vanilla creme brulee, subtle pecan, rich maple syrup, and cocoa.
Rich and inviting, the velvety mouthfeel carries notes of buttery caramel, burnt sugar, and a touch of fresh baked linzer cookie. This silky palate quickly awakens into a bright, peppery, peripheral spice.
Lengthy and warm with subtle dryness. Subdued notes of chocolate, raisin, and cool herbs linger in the shadow of stark oak spice.
