    Re: Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    I hope they re-discover the long lost 2nd half of this batch of barrels.

    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.
    I'd have to watch it again but I think they said they were filled in 2003, so yeah.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    $100 for this special eh? Well, when I got up this morning I felt pretty special and it didn't cost anything so I think I'll drink some Old Grand Dad instead.

    squire, the best thing about you is that you see it and tell it like it is. I wish everyone was like that

    I believe Chuck was on the selection team.

    I think that was just the round-table batch. Would like to know if he selected the 25th Anniversary as well.

    Indeed! I didnt know there were two versions. Puzzled why they didnt put it on the web site. Or did I miss that too?

    I haven't been able to find anything on the website about it.

    Re: Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    Has anyone done a blind SBS with the roundtable and a bottle of closer to 8 yr old Bookers? Just curious if it is markedly better or not.

    Re: Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    I was involved with two roundtable selections but those are standard-issue Booker's, not a limited edition except in the sense that every batch is finite. I haven't heard anything about an anniversary edition but it seems inevitable.
