Step back in time and witness the birth of a bourbon legend with the second release of the Booker's® Bourbon 2023 Collection: Booker's Batch 2023-02, affectionately known as the "Apprentice Batch." This extraordinary release reverently pays tribute to the formative years of my father, Booker Noe, long before he ascended to the esteemed role of Sixth Generation Master Distiller. It is a testament to his early days, where he embarked on a transformative journey guided by his cousin Carl Beam, delving deep into the art of crafting exceptional bourbon.


Within each bottle of the Apprentice Batch, you will discover a symphony of flavors that evoke the essence of this pivotal era. Immerse yourself in a tapestry of aromas, where the intoxicating scent of charred oak and the sweet embrace of caramel dance harmoniously. Savor the rich, robust flavors that unfold on your palate, as layers of vanilla and toasted spices intertwine, revealing the legacy of skill and knowledge passed down through generations.


As you sip on this remarkable bourbon, allow yourself to be transported to the humble beginnings of a whiskey luminary. Picture the early days, where the torch of tradition was entrusted to the hands of a young apprentice, eager to learn the secrets of the craft. The Apprentice Batch captures the essence of those transformative moments, paying homage to the mentorship and guidance that shaped Booker Noe's exceptional career.


Raise your glass to celebrate the legacy of a master distiller and the unwavering spirit of the apprentice. The Booker's Batch 2023-02 is more than a collection of flavors—it is a tribute to the roots of a whiskey dynasty, rooted in passion, dedication, and the enduring bond between teacher and student. Immerse yourself in the spirit of the Apprentice Batch and experience the transformative journey that led to greatness.

MASTER DISTILLER NOTES

This batch is made up of barrels that were aged in six different warehouses. The breakdown of barrel storage for Booker’s “Apprentice Batch” is as follows:


7% came from the 7th floor of 9-story warehouse H


9% came from the 4th floor of 7-story warehouse W


11% came from the 4th floor of 7-story warehouse 1


18% came from the 4th floor of 7-story warehouse O


19% came from the 4th floor of 9-story warehouse G


36% came from the 4th floor of 7-story warehouse Z


The liquid is a medium amber color from the seven years spent aging in the white oak barrels. The oak-forward aroma is well-balanced with notes of vanilla and toasted nuts, and all together the result is really pleasant. After the first sip, you’ll find the long finish doesn’t overpower the warm taste. I know Carl and Booker would’ve been proud of this batch and enjoyed it together after a long day's work at the distillery.
