Bookers 2021 01 Donohoes Batch
Each quarter, Jim Beam releases a single barrel selection ("batch") honoring the late 6th Generation Master Distiller Booker Noe and names it for a memory associated with him. Batch 2021-01 is dedicated to retired Jim Beam employee Mike Donohoe, a close friend of Booker's, with whom he indulged in a "special stash" of uncut, unfiltered whiskey that wowed them so much, it was shared with close friends, distributors and industry partners. This uncut and unfiltered bourbon was bottled at 125.3 proof - after 6 years, 11 months and 4 days of maturation - and is meant to resemble that legendary stash. It was released as a limited edition in March 2021.
