Booker’s 2021-02 ‘Tagalong Batch’ – The original barrel proof bourbon is back with another fantastic release, once again uncut and non-chill filtered. This release is masterful in that it balances a huge 127.9 proof with incredible complexity and drinkability, a testament to the talents of Fred Noe, the master distiller at Beam. Honeysuckle and earthy wood appear on the nose, with hints of cherry and vanilla, finishing with loads of baking spices and cherry reappearing. It cannot be overstated how wonderful the drinkability is on this whiskey, especially coming with the massive proof. A true American classic. Happy Friday!
