The third and final Booker’s batch release in 2020, Pigskin Batch is sure to please Booker’s fans who enjoy a robust flavor profile with a heavy cinnamon note. The bourbon is very straightforward, forgoing complexity in exchange for a bombastic flavor profile. Like 2020’s Little Book Chapter 4, Pigskin Batch leans heavily on a cinnamon note, but is a bit more rough around the edges and slightly less satisfying as a result.
