Product Description

Do you like to enjoy your whiskey by the mouthful? If so, then you’ll surely love the Booker's Bourbon Batch 2018-03 "Kentucky Chew".

Among the more recent lore surrounding the more recent history of Kentucky bourbon are those concerning Booker Noe, former master distiller at the Jim Beam distillery. During his tenure at the distillery, Noe is said to have developed a signature style of tasting bourbon dubbed the "Kentucky Chew" where it seemed he was chewing on the fine liquid.

The Booker's Bourbon Batch 2018-03 "Kentucky Chew" pays homage to Noe’s distinctive tasting method that called for the bourbon to his entire mouth allowing him to fully appreciate its flavor. With a robust character that mellows out into a pleasantly sweet taste profile, it’s arguably one of the best "regularly available" whiskey today.

Made from a mash bill of 77% corn, 13% rye, and 10% malted barley, the whiskey is aged for 6 years, 4 months, and 12 days in new American oak barrels. The casks used for this expression were carefully selected by Fred Noe, Booker's son and current Jim Beam master distiller, using the same tasting method and bottled at a healthy barrel proof of 126.7.

On the nose, the whiskey exudes oaky notes of vanilla, leather, cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar, and caramel. This is complemented by a rich palate of more brown sugar as well as dried fruits, cloves, raisins, fig, and baking spices accented by notes of wood and barrel char. On the back of the throat comes a long oaky finish with hints of baking spices, dark sweets, and vanilla all combining together for better drinkability.

With a great balance, full body, fair spiciness, and a silken mouthfeel, Booker's Bourbon Batch 2018-03 "Kentucky Chew" is the very definition of tempting. So grab a bottle today and give that first swig a good old Kentucky Chew.
