From the company website:
This batch was pulled during the rainy weeks ahead of the Kentucky Derby. The beautiful amber color of this batch reminds me of the horses that will compete on the racetrack. The aroma is deep with hints of vanilla and oak that lead you back to enjoy it several times to explore its depth. It has a balanced taste with a bit of sweetness and a pleasant finish that will leave you longing for another sip. My dad would be really proud to have a batch dedicated to his hard-working years at The Lumberyard and the experience this liquid delivers with every glass.

Booker's Bourbon Lumberyard Batch Rating
If people truly believe that this is one of the “better” batches of 2022 (whether or not it actually is, I don’t know), then people should just avoid Booker’s entirely for a while until Jim Beam figures out how to bring back their A game. Or, maybe they’ve moved their A game to the Hardin’s Creek lineup where they charge even more money.

Shattered glass really sucks, so if you’re on the move, this Glencairn-like stainless steel snifter glass should survive your travels. Full transparency, this is an Amazon affiliate link, so I may earn a commission if you buy this or something else from Amazon.
