The third in the 2016 series of Booker's Bourbon was released in June and named after Marilyn “Toogie” Dick, a lifelong friend of the family who met late distiller Booker and his wife Annis Noe back in high school. Toogie was a regular member of the original round-table who selected the first batches of Booker's Bourbon. Some 375 barrels of Kentucky bourbon that have aged at least 6 years, 4 months, and 4 days were selected by distiller Fred Noe from 6 different rack-houses to create this batch. Like all releases in the series, it's bottled at cask strength, 64.5% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Rich, sweet corn cereal and caramel mix with graham crackers and butterscotch. Spiciness kicks in with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, black pepper and a sprinkle of dill and thyme. Lots of vanilla and buttery caramel apple add a viscous coating to this big, rich bourbon. It finishes expectedly hot, and a big ice cube brings out more of the spices and jammy notes. "
