Color: Amber

Proof: 49% ABV , 98 Proof

Nose:: Warm brown sugar, with a spark of citrus and apple.

Add to that a diffusion of dried and somewhat complex spices.

    Brown Forman doesn’t seem to care about Old Forester brand as they don’t even make the Birthday edition available in New York State! We can’t even get regular Old Forester right now, they don’t have any supply of it!!!
