Batch 2019 - 2 is named “Shiny Barrel Batch” as an ode to a bygone distillery “tradition” that helped inspire Booker Noe, to create his namesake bourbon more than 30 years ago. Back in the day, some of the distillery’s rackhouse workers would carry around “mules” – pieces of plastic tubing they carried in the front of their overalls – and use them to thief out a taste of whiskey (or two) straight from an aging barrel. Some of these men had, prominent physiques. When they went in for a taste, their bellies would rub on the side of the barrel, removing dust and shining it up. Some used to say, “the shinier the barrel, the sweeter the whiskey,” and most often, these shiny barrels would be found in the center cut of the rackhouse where the temperature and humidity were just right.
