I selected “Granny’s Batch” on a sunny, chilly January day and found the color to be a light chestnut with a beautiful sparkle as the sunlight shone through it. I thoroughly enjoy the nose of Granny’s Batch with spice and hints of vanilla coming through. The taste fills your mouth with flavor and warmth that spreads across your palate, and it has a sweet, lingering finish. I am very proud to name this batch for my grandmother – and Dad’s mom – who I know would have enjoyed her evening highball made with Granny’s Batch of Booker’s Bourbon.
COLOR Our darkest and deepest amber and henna color.
TASTE Deep and complex flavors of vanilla, nuts and oak.
AROMA Robust vanilla and caramel notes; slightly smoky.
FINISH Long and full; perfect for easygoing sipping.
