"Like a good marriage, this bourbon is sweet, with a touch of tartness and keeps its fire burning. Pecans, buttery toffee, vanilla, caramel, apricot and tart apple mix with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and black pepper. Toasty Chex cereal flavors and a whiff of smoke add body and melt together with those rich textures. As with most cask-strength Booker's bourbons, this one is best to sip with a big ice cube to fan out its flavors and take the edge off the burn. "
