Booker’s Bourbon Releases Booker’s Batch 2023-03, “Mighty Fine Batch”

Booker’s Bourbon, a premium Jim Beam American whiskey label, recently announced the third brand release of 2023 – Booker’s Batch 2023-03, “Mighty Fine Batch.”

As with all Booker’s batches, there’s a back story tied to the naming. In this case, according to the brand, “this batch is named in honor of the signature phrase Sixth Generation Beam Master Distiller Booker Noe would use to compliment anything he approved of – from his namesake bourbon to his country ham.

“Mighty fine’ was Booker’s go-to phrase. He would often get together with others in the whiskey industry to taste samples of Booker’s Bourbon, and everyone knew he was happy with his selection when he sipped it and said it was “mighty fine,” followed by, “that’s a damn good batch!”

“Shortly before Booker passed away in 2004, his son, Seventh Generation Beam Master Distiller Fred Noe, was in charge of selecting the barrels for a Booker’s Bourbon batch. Fred was a little nervous at first – he had big shoes to fill – but after Booker tasted the sample, he looked at Fred and said, ‘Mighty fine job, son.’ A lot of people thought it was one of the best batches, but receiving Booker’s vote of confidence made it that much more special for Fred – a moment he will never forget.”

Official tasting notes and other details for this release are as follows.

  • Proof: 126.6
  • Age: 7 years, 1 month, 10 days
  • Booker’s “Mighty Fine Batch” has a rich color with a pleasant aroma of vanilla and sweet brown sugar. The flavor is full bodied and further opens up with a small touch of water that gives a “Kentucky Hug” finish.
