    Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2012?

    Came across a bottle of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2012 on the shelf yesterday, and wondered if it is worth going back for...?

    Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2012?

    Prices can be all over the place. I got one for $45 and have been nursing it for months, but do enjoy it.

    I can't remember the exact price, but I know it was under $50.

    I really enjoy OFBB 2012. Under $50 sounds like a reasonable price.

    I did a review of it a little earlier in the year. Hope this helps http://americanwhiskeyreviews.com/20...thday-bourbon/
    I've got more whiskey than I need but not nearly as much as I'd like

    $50 is pushing it in my book, our area is not noted for excellent prices but BB around here is close to $40.

    Re: Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2012?

    I was going to start a thread about this bourbon.

    I've gotten really into OF signature lately, which has rekindled a latent love for Woodford. I can't wait for this year's BB as just half a year ago I could have gotten the last four or five years of BB for a good price...when I thought I didn't like OF. Anyway, from googling it seems that this gets released in September of every year. I wonder if the climate of bourbon mania we're in means it'll sell out immediately / get allocated. I hope not.

    OK, looks like I could get a bottle of the 2012 for like $35. If I can I'll come back in and post my thoughts.

    Buy it all at that price. 2012 was a good year.

    Old forester Bday is already on allotment in ky. It is gone by Xmas here. It lingers in other areas.


    If they can keep it under $50 at retail, it is a good buy. But I have a feeling it won't be much longer. Brown Foreman has the most regular price increases in the game.
