Bold and palatial Bourbon with a legacy.

Booker Noe, Jim Beam’s grandson and Gen. 6, never strayed from the surefire path of his ancestors. When everyone succumbed to the craze of light Whiskeys, Booker kept it true and carefully curated. He came up with a special way of tasting Whiskey: check the color, breathe the Spirit in through your mouth, sip it, and swish it around. Then, smack them lips. He called it a “Kentucky Chew”.

Booker’s third batch of 2018 is a homage to that quirk. Hand-picked by Booker’s son Fred, it’s a cask-strength delight aged in new charred oak barrels for exactly six years, four months, and twelve days. The mash bill of 77% corn, 13% rye, and 10% malted barley made sure the Spirit is balanced, silky and full-bodied. Bottled at 63%, it’s a strong and bold expression, and if you like high proof Bourbons, it might become your new favorite. Papa Booker would be proud.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
