Producer’s tasting notes
This batch has an elegant colour that is beautiful in the glass. The aroma is sweet with a subtle hint of vanilla that is mingled with brown sugar notes. The flavour is sweet at first with a long, smooth finish that warms your palate.

Each year, Booker’s release a series of bottlings that celebrate the life of founder and former master distiller Booker Noe. This expression, titled “Country Ham”, is the third Booker’s release for 2019 and commemorates the enjoyment Booker Noe took from curing, and tasting country hams along with his world class bourbon. This batch is made up of 364 barrels, produced on a single date and stored in three warehouses scattered on the Booker’s land.
Fred Noe (Booker’s son Beam Family’s 7th Generation Master Distiller), says it best….
“Just like his bourbon, Dad had high standards for his ham. And he liked to keep things simple – his bourbon neat and his country ham paired only with a cracker or biscuit. So, take a note from Booker and try a nice ham alongside a glass of Booker’s Bourbon. You won’t regret it”.
