Uncut and unfiltered as per all previous batches, Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2015-04 has been aged for 6 years and 5 months, and is said to deliver notes of vanilla and oak and a finish that is long and smooth.
Commenting on the name of the latest Booker’s Bourbon Batch, Annis Wickham Noe, wife of Booker and mother of Fred, said: “I’ve always been fond of cooking with bourbon. Years ago, as I was preparing a pork roast, I mistakenly reached for a bottle of my husband’s namesake bourbon to pour over the roast. The oven sparked from the bourbon’s high proof and the door flew open – that’s how the Oven Buster nickname was born!”
The Roundtable panellists who helped select Batch 2015-04 included: Chuck Cowdery, Blogger and Author of “Bourbon, Strange: Surprising Stories of American Whiskey” - Geoff Kleinman, Founder and Managing Editor of drinkspirits.com - John McCarthy, Spirits Writer and Senior Managing Editor of Men’s Health Magazine - Jack Robertiello, Spirits Writer and Spirits Competition Judge and Tony Sachs, Spirits Writer and Blogger for Huffington Post.
