Whiskey fanatics in Seattle are going crazy over this bourbon

So the buzz this week around Seattle is how to score a bottle of  the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. In Washington state, it’s  the most sought-after whiskey not called Pappy Van Winkle.

In Louisville, where the Birthday Bourbon gets made, several liquor stores reportedly sold out within 10 minutes.

In Washington state, it’s being released this week. It’s about $60 but the going rate on the internet or secondary market is about $150.

Earlier this week, I sent a couple of readers to Total Wine stores who were able to land a couple of bottles. BevMo! stores may have them on the shelves by the end of next week. There’s usually a one bottle limit per customer at most liquor stores.

This limited edition released commemorates the birthday of the late George Garvin Brown, founder of Old Forester. It has become a hot item lately because the 2012 and the 2013 releases were outstanding, earning some of the highest marks among whiskey critics, which only led to the frenzy over its 2014 release.

I’ve had the 2013, and it was one of the best bourbons I’ve tasted in recent years.
