Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 65 in December 2017

Whoop. Thanks for having a birthday in my mouth! This is what bourbon should aspire to be. Corn mash is prominent, syrup and deep, deep bourban blanket.

2016 birthday bourbon. This is amazing, Carmelized bananas and incredibly smooth.

Todd H.  •   •  4.5

I want this on my birthday. Juicy orange pulp and tobacco. Easy drinking long finish. Beautiful on its own, but would also be perfect with a cocktail.

#thisrocks! Makes me feel like today is my birthday!

Elliott  •   •  4.0

This is the best sleeper in the limited release Bourbon game. Lime zest. Lively and mouth watering but with a slight bitter finish that I’ve seen in past years. Still delicious.

Ashley  •   •  3.5

Like an orange-bourbon candy! Easy to drink.
