Batch C91-L20 of Jim Beam’s iconic uncut, straight-from-the-barrel small batch expression was distilled on 20 December 1991 and aged for 7 years and 5 months. It was bottled in May 1999 at 126.6 proof. 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: the bottle has a cracked wax seal.
