"Booker's bourbon releases are expected to bold and spicy, and the Blue Knights edition lives up to that reputation. Look past that spice to find notes of dark chocolate, coffee, almond, and rye. A slightly tart character mars the whiskey slightly, but it's still a solid entry in the Booker's line."
