    Best Old Forester Birthday Bourbon

    I recently came across a store that had a bunch of OFBB 2003 and 2004. I have only tasted the 2009 and 2010 up until now so I got a bottle of each. My question is which is your favorite OFBB year(s).

    I've only had a few of the years, but my favorite is hands down the 2007. I just haven't had it in a while- its impossible to find.

    Re: Best Old Forester Birthday Bourbon

    My favorites would be 2002 first followed by 2007...the 2006 for me is very hit and miss...more so then any other bourbon I've tasted. Some nights I appreciate it almost to the point of liking it and other nights it's terrible. I thought the 05 and 08 were forgettable as there wasn't anything special about them and I haven't tried the 03 or 04 so I can't comment on those.

    Funny how everyone loves the 2007.

    I wonder who has one and does not like it yet can't seem to get rid of it......

    Most definitely the 2007. I've only had the 2007 and 2010. I've seen the 2004 on the shelves several places, but never pulled the trigger. The 2007 is a must buy if you see it.

    Re: Best Old Forester Birthday Bourbon

    I've only had the 2009 and hated it. It's easily among the worst whiskies I've tasted so far, and has kept me from trying any of the other OFBB vintages. I'll keep an eye out for the 2007, though, after reading the love-in for it here.
    "Good" may be subjective, but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary.
