This is another super limited production project from the Bourbon leaders, Booker’s and their iconic master distiller, Fred Noe. They’re calling this batch from April of 2021, ‘Noe Strangers’. It’s a monster at 6 years 6 months and 12 days and 124.4 Proof (62.2% alc.)
This is a gorgeous non-chill filtered Cask Strength bourbon made in new charred oak with a mashbill of 77% Corn, 13% Rye and 10% Malted Barley. I happen to think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever had from these Bourbon legends, probably because Freddie made it as an homage to his father Booker Noe. It’s got a gorgeous caramel nose that also features notes of hazelnuts, toffee and dried dark fruit. It’s got the classic Booker aroma profile with the warm, heavy palate that flashes oak, caramel, baking spices, with a nutty component. The finish is long with baking spices, vanilla and a Kentucky hug.
