Booker’s Batch No. B95-C-31 is the highest-grade bourbon ever made at Jim Beam, bottled at a barrel strength of 63.35% or 126.7 proof. Booker’s Batch B95-C-31 was distilled in March 1995 and bottled in 2002, after having matured in American Oak for 7 years and 9 months. The Booker’s Bourbon brand was started by Booker Noe (1929-2004), who was Jim Beam’s Master Distiller for more than forty years. He retired in 1992, and his son Fred Noe has since become the distillery’s Master Distiller. Please note: there is no box with this release.
