It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about one of their bottles of bourbon or their award-winning rye, Booker’s treats you right. Booker Noe, the creator of the brand and the man that coined the term “small batch,” was notorious for his old-fashioned cookouts for friends, family, neighbors and distillery employees—he called them “Bourbon-ques.” It’s in that spirit that this new bottle is named. Booker’s Backyard BBQ is bottled uncut at its natural proof of 128.8 after spending 6 years, 2 months and 10 days in barrels. The blend from the barrels gives it a complex aroma, a nose with sweet hints of maple and vanilla, and a well balanced taste with a warm finish. Booker’s Backyard BBQ Bourbon is available now in limited quantities with a suggested retail price of around $70.
