That sweet Brown, with a stronger buzz.

As a sixth generation distiller, reared at a distillery, smack dab in the middle of Kentucky, it goes without saying that Booker Noe was born with Bourbon in his blood. At 21 he set out to fulfill his destiny, blessing us with small batch Bourbon (it is said that he actually coined the term “small batch”). In 1992, inspired by a 2-century old tradition, Booker’s True Barrel Bourbon was born.

Jim Beam’s “Small Batch Bourbon Collection” is a line of cask strength, non-chill filtered Bourbons, bottled at an uncut and unadulterated 121-130.6 proof. If you were wondering, yes this is the highest alcohol content of any brand of Jim Beam. These Bourbons were hand selected by Booker Noe himself, who used to bottle his raw Bourbons exclusively for friends and family.

In honor of Noe’s longtime pal Tommy Crume, this batch of Booker’s is aged at center cut. After Crume retired in 2016 Booker’s notorious ‘round table’ decided to have the first batch of 2017 named in his honor.

Tommy’s small batch blend is exactly 6 years, 4 months, and 6 days old. The barrels that comprise this Whiskey were produced between January 2009 and July 2010, and drawn from three warehouses, for a total of 335 barrels (ok so relatively speaking, this is small batch for a distillery of Jim Beam’s cosmic proportions).

Bottled at a high-octane 128.5 proof, this sweet Brown is robust on the nose. After its initial singe-your-eyebrows heat, it’s sweet on the palate. With well-developed notes of vanilla, tobacco, citrus, and basil, this Bourbon is warm on the finish.

Smartass Corner:
Curious to discover the knights of the round table who brought this Bourbon to fruition? Look no further: Chuck Cowdery, Lew Bryson, F. Paul Pacult, Nino Marchetti, Blake Riber, John McCarthy, Jack Robertiello, and Bobby Childs.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
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.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
