The sweepstakes allow consumers nationwide a more equal opportunity to purchase the limited-edition expression. Birthday Bourbon bottles will not be sold at the Old Forester Distillery on September 2.

A rich aged leather in color, the whiskey offers aromas of bright candied citrus with floral overtones, which give way to rich turbinado sugar and roasted coffee beans as slight cedar and charred oak round out the nose. The palate features subtle citrus with heavy notes of dark honey, molasses, and charred oak. The finish finds dry toasty oaked caramel with lingering bittersweet tannins.

“Every year, Birthday Bourbon is a unique opportunity for lovers of Old Forester to taste a snapshot of bourbon that was laid down over a decade ago,” explained Old Forester Master Taster Melissa Rift. “This year’s 12-year-old offering serves up a classic Old Forester profile that honors George Garvin Brown’s ongoing legacy.”

Sweepstakes winners will be chosen on September 2, 2023 and bottles will be available for pickup between September 8, 2023 through December 23, 2023.
