About Booker's Small Batch Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey

Following the end of the American Revolutionary War, Johannes Reginald Beam emigrated from Germany to the United States, and eventually settled in Kentucky County. At the time, Kentucky County was still considered part of Virginia, and was overseen by a military governor named John J. Bowman. After settling in Kentucky, Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in whiskey production for the eponymous company (the company is actually named after James Beam, who rescued it following Prohibition).

Booker's Small Batch Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey is named in honor of Booker Noe, the grandson of Jim Beam. Made from a mash of primarily corn, the bourbon was initially bottled by Noe to be used as gifts for close friends and family. Today, the bourbon is matured in virgin American oak casks that are situated in the center of a Kentucky rickhouse, where the temperature and humidity are the most favorable for maturing whiskey. After the bourbon has matured for seven to nine years, it is bottled at cask strength (~130 proof) without the use of chill filtration or artificial coloring.

As a result, the bourbon has a powerful aroma of caramel, vanilla and oak that opens up to notes of pepper, brown spices, mint and cloves with a splash of water. Notes of dark chocolate, butterscotch, leather and dark fruits dominate the palate, and give way to a bold and intense finish.

Booker's Small Batch Cask Strength Bourbon earned the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2006, 2007 and 2009, and earned a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthusiast. "This is bourbon the way it used to be. The way it was meant to be," says Booker.
