The second of the Booker’s 2020 releases, “Boston Batch” is named after the production site where Booker Noe first started his distilling career. Located in Boston, KY, it was purchased by the James B. Beam Distilling company in the early 1950’s as a second distilling location to increase their capacity.

Booker’s is known for being a bold, high proof pour and Boston Batch lives up to those expectations. The sip is distinctly Jim Beam, starting with its nut infused nose. The rest of the sip is bold and full of spice and oak. It’s not the most complex Booker’s produced, however it will please those who are a fan of the brand, along with individuals who are looking for a bold, high proof pour.
