The best batch of the year turns out to be the last release of the year. Well done, Pigskin. This delicious Bookers batch has the structural grandness of a skyscraper. Lacey sugars, round candied orange peel and rye spice notes, and a vanilla and oak sugar finish that begspleadsfor several satisfying smacks of the famous Kentucky chew. In all Pigskin is a custardy spice bomb with so many of the flavors that made the now-legendary Bookers 30th so great. Sure, it lacks the age (and thankfully, the price tag), but Pigskin is a showcase for why Bookers has always been such a beloved and respected bourboneven at 6 years and change.

30 years ago, my dad, Booker Noe, released the first batch of his namesake Booker's® Bourbon as his vision of what the perfect whiskey should be. In honor of Dad's legacy and in celebration of 30 years of the damn good whiskey he created, we're celebrating in the best way we know how – by releasing a special extra-aged, limited edition Booker's® Bourbon.

Over the last few years, the floors of some of our rackhouses in Clermont were in need of redoing, so we pulled up the floorboards. We thought it would be a shame to throw away so much history, so we stored them for something special. Each box of Booker's® 30th Anniversary Bourbon is made from the reclaimed wood of those floors – the same floors walked by legends Booker and Fred Noe as they selected batches of Booker's.
