Booker's Bourbon Batch 2016-05 "Off Your Rocker"
Booker's // Kentucky , USA
The fifth 2016 release from Booker's Bourbon is dubbed Off Your Rocker. It's a title in homage both of Booker Noe's penchant for lounging in the rocking chair, but also his big personality. Off Your Rocker is aged for exactly six years, seven months, and 23 days, and the uncut cask-strength bourbon is bottled at 129.7 proof.

"A sweet, rich nose offers brown sugar, vanilla, maple syrup, and baking spices. The palate opens soft and oily, moving into oak and robust rye spice, black pepper, cocoa powder, and more vanilla. Finish is both very big and very rich, with sweetness staying atop of a lurking heat and menthol. It's a sweet beast of a dram. Water softens it a touch, while ice tames it more fully, highlighting sweetness, along with a spicy streak."
