    Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    Ok today I was at a local liquor store.. The owner mentioned to me he was on a list and was going to be able to get a couple of Bottles of a Special Booker Noe Bourbon.. I am well aware of regular Booker's having had it many times in the past.. I did a Google search and all the info I found seemed to be about the current Booker's.. Does anyone know anything about a Limited Edition or Special Bottling of Booker's due out some time this year?? It sounded like it was very limited and more expensive then the regular bottling of Booker's 7 Year Old Small Batch..Thanks in advance for any info.. Creggor

    Could it be the 25th Anniversary Booker's?

    Yeah, it is going to be $100 MSRP. Rumor has it that it will be 10 years old.

    Re: Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    I remember reading over the fall, I think it was, that there was a special selection being planned for Bookers. Seems like the batch number was not like the usual number (the usual being written as c06-b-15), but was something like 2013b. I havent seen any yet though

    at $100, I think Id just grab two regular 'ol Booker's and a cheap lunch, as I really like Booker's as is, and dont think an extra 2.5 years in the barrel would really do it any favors. But I would try it if I saw it at a bar/restaurant, just to satisfy my curiosity.

    Re: Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    Ok I called my store back and the owner told me he was very limited in the number of bottles he was going to be allocated. This is a decent size store and he was going to get three bottles.. I feel it has to be this 25th Anniversary Booke'rs etc.. Thanks again for the help..

    Interesting. Wasn't Booker Noe pretty adamant about liking his bourbon in the 6-7 year old range?

    Of course, he also was vehemently opposed to single barrels and over-9 year-olds. I suppose it's like the introduction of lower proof Old Fitz after Pappy died.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I am sure he is rolling in his grave now...

    It is most likely 10 years old because the video states that it is the last of the barrels that Booker Noe had made and he died 10 years ago.
