Booker's Bourbon Shiny Barrel Batch 2019
Like all Booker’s releases, “Shiny Barrel Batch” is named for something late Master Distiller Booker Noe held dear. A rickhouse is dusty place, but back in Booker’s day certain “honey” barrels got cleaned up more often than others. Distillery workers looking to sneak a taste from a particular bourbon barrel during the day would siphon out the whiskey with plastic tubing, brushing up against the staves in the process. Their overalls would wipe off the dust of years spent aging, and mark the barrel for other thirsty coworkers to find.
