Booker's 2020-02 "Boston Batch" 126.1 Proof Bourbon
Booker's Bourbon Batch 2020-02 "Boston Batch" is named after the production site where Booker Noe started his career. Located in Boston, KY, the distillery was purchased by James B. Distilling Co. in the 1950s and is now named Booker Noe Distillery. The bourbon for this batch was selected by Fred Noe and as always is bottled uncut and unfiltered. It was aged for 6 years, 3 months, and 10 days and is bottled at 126.5 proof.
Dark char notes and medium-high spiced notes take over the aroma along with some apple skins and dark caramel. Bittersweet notes come along on the palate with vanilla. Baking spices and menthol make appearances as well. Again the bittersweet flavors come through on the finish which isn't particularly long. Would serve with a giant ice cube or as an Old Fashioned.
