Booker Noe, former master distiller of Jim Beam and founder of Booker’s Bourbon, loved bluegrass music as much as he loved whiskey. Booker’s Bluegrass is the first in the series of six releases in 2016 to honor the life of the man who helped revitalize the bourbon industry. This is aged for just under seven years, comprised of barrels pulled from seven rickhouses, and bottled at 127.9 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Booker's Bourbon is bottled uncut with any water, and with its high-proof most drinkers will want to add at least a little ice or water. The bourbon tastes of oak and vanilla when served neat, but it runs too hot to pick up much more nuance than that. With some dilution it offers notes of leather and tobacco. Bottom line: Booker's is a classic for a reason, and this batch is no exception. Pour it over a big ice cube and enjoy."
