Booker's Bourbon Batch 2018-03 "Kentucky Chew"
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedSmell: strong oak aroma, burnt sugars, light floral, light alcohol Taste: initial strong alcohol taste (expected at 126.7%), powerful oak spices, tingling sensation on tongue Finish: powerful finish with slight burn, leaves slight numbing in mouth, more warm than burn on the way down, more harsh than smooth Conclusion: disappointed in the taste given the high price point. Flavor on palate is adequate but leaves more to be desired with a $70 price point. Most disappointed with the harsh finish. Have tasted 100-125 proof before with a much smoother finish for a better value i.e. Cosy Road, Makers Cask, among others.70.0 USD per BottleWoodman's Food Market
