A primo example of exceptional Booker’s craftsmanship at full throttle.

Jim Beam Distillery — the integral part of mega-corp Beam Suntory — is one of the largest Bourbon producers in the world. Seven generations of the Beam Family have worked the stills there since 1795. The Jim Beam Distillery makes an unusually large number of offerings for it’s core Jim Beam line and several brands, including Red Stag, Jacob’s Ghost, and a selection of higher end “small batch” Bourbons — Baker’s, Basil Hayden’s, Knob Creek, and our Bourbon fo the day, Booker’s.

Every bottle of Booker’s Backyard BBQ Bourbon is made with exacting standards and unmatched technique. What makes Booker’s so special, you ask? Well, the barrels are hand selected from the center of the rickhouse and aged to taste — this current batch is aged six years, two months, and ten days. Further, this fine American Bourbon is bottled unfiltered and uncut, clocking in at a scorching 128.8 proof (64.4% ABV). That’s enough full-flavored, raw American horsepower to keep that backyard party rocking until dawn… and then some more.

Smartass corner:
The first retail Whiskey from Beam was branded “Old Jake Beam Sour Mash” and the original, make-shift still was affectionately called “Old Tub.”

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Ratings & Reviews
Troy
Troy,
Less harsh than expected for the high ABV. Toasted and slightly spicy.
 
Brad
Brad,
There is a little too much heat on the front side of this bourbon. But it is uncut and unfiltered with a strong flavor profile, which are all things I love.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
A bit high proof for me, but a great bourbon. Smells like marshmallows to me, lovely spice and sweetness. This is the only whiskey I have ever added a touch of water to and preferred it that way.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Harsher than the rest of the Booker's Small Batch series but always delicious. A splash of water helps soften the kick.
 
Steve

Great bourbon. I am a fan of high proof bourbon and this is always available in NY.

Very smooth with a very distinctive kick if you are looking for a bourbon to help you mellow out after a long day look no further..
