Bookers Batch 2015-03 The Center Cut Bourbon
MASTER DISTILLER NOTES
“This batch was the “Center Cut” batch, named for the special part of the aging rack house my father, Booker, aged his favorite bourbon, Booker’s. The barrels selected have a nice chestnut color that reminds me of the beautiful thoroughbred horses that race here in Kentucky. The nose on this batch has vanilla and a lot of the oak from the barrels. There’s a very intense flavor that explodes in your mouth and it leaves a sweet, long, pleasant finish. A small splash of water opens this batch up for some great sipping.“
Booker’s Bourbon is proud to release the third batch in its 2015 collection, Batch 2015-03, which features a custom label celebrating founding distiller Booker Noe’s favorite part of the rackhouse and choice cut of meat – “The Center Cut.”
Booker liked to age his namesake barrels in the center of the rackhouse – the 5th floor – to achieve the robust flavor that Booker’s® Bourbon is known for. This is where the temperature, humidity and sunlight combine to produce perfect aging conditions. As for the meat, Booker liked to cure his own and enjoyed nothing better than a thick slice from the center.
Batch 2015-03, named the “The Center Cut,” is the first batch in the 2015 limited-edition collection that Fred Noe, Beam’s 7th Generation Master Distiller, selected with the help of the Booker’s Bourbon Roundtable, an exclusive group of top whiskey experts, enthusiasts and writers. For the first time ever, the Roundtable was also joined by local Louisville, Kentucky, chef, Coby Ming, who used her culinary expertise to help select a batch that embodies Booker’s whiskey preferences and ensures an ideal flavor profile for food pairing.
