WE 93

This tawny Bourbon has a rich, spiced scent reminiscent of fruitcake. On the palate, look for caramel studded with dried cherry, orange peel and clove, finishing quite dry. A great profile for classic cocktails, and not too precious to mix.

Deep color, medium-to-heavy feel. Strong, sweet fragrance with wood and spice tones. Butterscotch candy flavors, so strong I almost hear cellophane unwrapping, are echoed by some oak, caramel and vanilla. Smooth, not too much alcohol fire. Mellow, long finish with a touch of herbal and anise notes.
Made with a blend of straight Bourbons, this whiskey has a mild vanilla and resin scent. On the palate, flavors run to vanilla, cedar and citrus. Adding water brings out distinct cinnamon and peach notes, before falling into vanilla.
The Koval Rye Whiskey is a softer-style single barrel rye made from the heart cut of the distillate, no heads or tails (the rougher-tasting product of distillation). Aged in new American oak from Minnesota and made from grain sourced from a local organic farmer collective in the Midwest, there are lots of maple, candy corn, and spice notes on this easy-drinking rye.
WE 95

This uncut, barrel-strength Bourbon is bold and flavorful. The caramel aroma is rich and luxe. On the palate, it's quite tannic and drying, but the flavor shines through, showing toffee, caramel and dried cherry, with a spicy finish of clove, dried fig and date. The alcohol feels remarkably balanced despite the high proof. It needs no adornment: just add a chunk of ice and enjoy.

WE 97

Made from a blend of very rare 13 to 16-year-old whiskies, this bottling pays tribute to Master Distiller Jimmy Russell's 60 years at the Wild Turkey Distillery. This light, silky Bourbon shows lots of vanilla-maple and brown sugar flavors accented by a hint of peach, and tapers off delicately, with clove, cinnamon, ginger and burnt orange peel notes on the finish.

Unlike the standard Old Forester, which is a batch of whisky from several different years, Birthday Bourbon is a vintage-dated bourbon, hand-selected by Master Distiller, Chris Morris, from one specific day of production. The result is a one-of-a-kind character and flavor that will never be replicated again. The unique, decanter style glass bottle is a throwback to the late 1800’s when Old Forester was first produced. Old Forester is the only bourbon still in existence today that was produced before, during and after Prohibition by its original distiller. No other bourbon brand sold in the U.S. today can make that claim. Since its introduction in 2002, Old Forester Birthday Bourbon has received unprecedented acclaim and has collected honors from USA Today, Malt Advocate, Whisky Magazine, Spirit Journal, and Sante. A favorite among critics, Old Forester Birthday Bourbon has taken home gold from numerous tasting competitions including a gold medal in the 2005, 2006 & 2007 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The 2007 expression was also named American Whiskey of the Year at Malt Advocate WhiskyFest New York.
