Booker's Bourbon Batch 2018-03 "Kentucky Chew" is the third Booker's release for 2018. It's named for Booker Noe's signature way of tasting bourbon, a term coined by a whiskey writer who had the pleasure of witnessing this method firsthand. This batch was selected by Fred Noe, Booker's son, who also employs the Kentucky Chew method when tasting bourbon. Aged for 6 years, 4 months, and 12 days, this Kentucky straight bourbon is bottled uncut and unfiltered at 126.7 proof.

Tasting Notes

""Kentucky Chew" is an apt name for this heavy-bodied Booker's release. It hits the palate with every bit of charred oak in the barrels, lending notes of smoke, maduro cigar, and licorice root. Sipped neat, a numbing spiciness lingers on the finish. A little bit of this whiskey goes a long way, and fans of darker, spicier bourbons will find a lot to enjoy here."
