Slowly pour the Bourbon along the top edge, and sides of the meat until the cloth is moistened throughout, start dry aging as you normally would. Sporadically reapply small amounts of Bourbon throughout the dry-aging process, how much is personal taste and testing, as the meat has to be able to dry age.
How does Dry Age Chef Beef Aging work? Why Bourbon or Whiskey Soaking?

A combination of preparation and a lot of chemistry goes on during the dry-aging process, including important enzyme-on-protein action. As the meat ages, enzymes that were contained in the muscles' cells work free and become a kind of creative wrecking crew. They break down proteins into amino acids, so the flavor deepens. They turn the small amounts of carbohydrates in the meat into sugars, so the taste seems sweeter. And they weaken connective tissue around protein strands, so the meat becomes more tender.
