Booker's True Barrel Bourbon 700ml (Batch 2022-01E)
In 1988, Booker Noe, Grandson of Jim Beam introduced his own signature bourbon - 'Booker's'- hand-selected and bottled straight from the barrel, uncut and unfiltered. He first created 'Booker's' as a holiday gift for close friends, but the whiskey was so well received that he decided to make it available to bourbon lovers worldwide. This is a big, muscular style of bourbon with plenty of spice, dried fruits & toasted nuts. Each batch varies slightly as Booker's is bottled uncut at barrel strength usually around 60% abv. Remarkably well-balanced for such a brawny style, opens up nicely with a splash of water and would go even better with a good cigar.
This batch was bottled at 124.3 proof, it has a deep golden caramel colour and rich vanilla aroma with hints of spice that you can enjoy even before your first sip. Well rounded with the typical sweet taste that comes from the time spent aging in the unique Kentucky climate. The warm and pleasant finish make it an ideal pour.
