This is now the 3rd batch of Booker’s we have reviewed here, and for it we are going to step back in time a couple batches from the previous batch reviewed, “Kathleen’s Batch”, which was the first quarterly release of 2018.  My reason for this is simple:  there’s still a lot of Batch 2017-03 on […]

Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2016-06 “Noe Hard Times”

by Andrew Owenon November 22, 2017
Created by the late great Master Distiller at Jim Beam, Booker Noe, Booker’s bourbon is a quarterly release small batch bourbon that is uncut and unfiltered.  In other words, besides vatting the barrels selected for the batch, nothing is done from barrel to bottle.  No filtration, no cutting the proof with water.  If you want […]
