Booker’s Bourbon Sip Awhile Batch 2017-04
Booker’s Bourbon Batch 2017-04, Sip Awhile, according to those behind it, was named as such “in tribute to founding distiller, Booker Noe, and his appreciation for all of life’s moments.
Sip Awhile, like other Booker’s bourbons before it, is a monster to drink at 128.1 proof. It was aged 6 years, 8 months and 14 days, having been culled from barrels from four different production dates stored in five different locations within three storage warehouses.
Very limited official tasting notes from the Beam distillery suggest Batch 2017-04 to have “a rich chestnut hue with a nose that brings forward a sweet aroma of vanilla with some notes of caramel.”
