April showers bring May flowers…as well as a new Booker’s® Bourbon batch!
Booker’s Bourbon 2019-02 “Shiny Barrel Batch” is now available nationwide! This newest expression is an ode to a bygone distillery “tradition” where back in the day, there were the barrels certain rackhouse workers liked to sneak a taste from, and in doing so, they rubbed off the exterior dust and shined them up. 6th Generation Master Distiller Booker Noe took this as a sign that these barrels contained the real good stuff – and he took inspiration from them when setting the standards for his namesake Booker’s Bourbon.
Like all of Booker’s batches, Booker’s “Shiny Barrel Batch” is bottled at its natural proof and selected with the following characteristics:
- Age: 6 years, 5 months, and 1 day
- Proof: 124
- Tasting Notes: Booker’s® “Shiny Barrel Batch” offers a sweet nose with a beautiful chestnut color and rich vanilla notes that are signature of Booker’s® Bourbon. The finish is medium and warm.
- Sipping Suggestions: Neat, over ice or with a few drops of water.
- SRP + Availability: Booker’s® “Shiny Barrel Batch” is now available nationwide in limited quantities with an SRP of $79.99.
