Kathleen’s Batch from Booker’s

One of the Country’s Best Bourbon Brands Released a Brand New Batch. You’ll Want It

Booker’s, which belongs to the same family as Baker’s, Basil Hayden’s and Knob Creek (all part of Beam Suntory’s “Small Batch Bourbon Collection”), is known for its high-proof bourbons; its flagship whiskey, for example, is aged anywhere between six to eight years and bottled at 120 to 130 proof. Booker’s latest, dubbed Kathleen’s Batch, honors Kathleen DiBenedetto, an inductee into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame who works for Beam Suntory. Aged for six years, three months and 14 days, Kathleen’s Batch was bottled at 63.7 percent ABV and retails for around $70. Expect notes of leather and honey with that signature Booker’s bite.
