Small Batch Collection 2016-04 Bluegill Creek Batch Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Booker’s Batch 2016-04 is named after Booker Noe’s love for fishing. He’d take his son, current Jim Beam Master Distiller Fred Noe, fishing for bluegill. Other than making bourbon, fishing was one of Booker’s passions. This batch of Booker’s comes in at 128 proof and aged 6 years, 5 months and 28 days. Limited editions aside, Booker’s will always come in between 6 and 8 years. The label mentions that THE Jim Beam liked his bourbon aged in that range. “Bluegill Creek” barrels were pulled from four different rack houses, always from the center racks. Booker’s Bourbon is a rare barrel-strength bourbon, bottled uncut and unfiltered*. But you obviously know a good bit about bourbon, because you don’t end up here by mistake. We don’t advertise. We don’t do social media. We just do bourbon. We focus on the sweet spot. The center of the rackhouse where the temperature and humidity stars align to create the deepest and most intense flavors. Once it’s aged to perfection, which always varies, the liquid is bottled uncut and unfiltered*. We don’t add, we don’t water down, and we don’t apologize for it. For some people, it may be too much. But for true bourbon fans, it’s probably the best ever.

How about we be genuine: the confirmation on this isn't playing around. Container records 128 and the companions I've imparted to state you can truly tell. In any event having to a great extent inoculated my tastebuds throughout the years this runs somewhat hot and interesting. At the end of the day I very appreciate that perspective and you can tame things down with a touch of water should you wish. Playing it straight I get a smooth grainy pleasantness that ascents to drift over the spiky warmth - practically like cornbread bested with thick caramel sauce. Delightful yet not rich or substantial. Nose will open your sinuses with a light chocolate edge and a hint of white pepper. Including water changes things up a lot. Nose shifts toward cinnamon oat and the caramel flavors sprout to fill your mouth.

This jug changed my assessment of whiskey for eternity. The entirety of the flavors. In a crate. A stogie box. Always

Tasting Notes
Nose
Strong notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and honey lead off the aroma. A return visit to the glass reveals a caramelized sugar undertone. Adding a few drops of water (my preferred method for Booker’s) discernibly changes the nose. Instead of the cinnamon, a light herbal note joins the vanilla and honey.
Taste
Toffee and vanilla can be found on the front, along with what I often describe as toasted hazelnut. Light pepper, citrus, and floral notes follow, but vanilla remains the driving flavor. The finish is a touch dry and moderate in duration with strong oak notes. With a few drops of water, the slightly bitter notes of hazelnut are really toned down, and the sweeter notes include caramel through the front and mid-palate.
Finish
The duration of the finish is slightly shorter with a few drops of water added, but the flavor is mostly unchanged.
