    A sample gifted from the "Whiskey Transfer Program" from dthom. A very complex whiskey with the signature Beam nutty flavors that I've come to expect. Nose: Musty wood, butterscotch, a slight raisin scent, and heavy ethanol (no surprise given the proof). The prevailing smell? Bubblegum like Big League Chew. Flavor: This doesn't bite as hard as the proof would suggest. Sweet vanilla, dried fruits like cranberries, and brown sugar. Finish: Peanut Butter. Lots of peanut butter and then sandalwood and tobacco mixed with cloves that tastes kind of like a clove cigarette. It finishes strong with more chunky peanut butter. The finish is the best part here for sure. My first foray in to the Booker's world and I like it. I'd definitely try more though the price point is a little steep.

    A whiskey of beautiful extremes, Booker’s 2018-01 greets the nose with ripe red apples, cooked pears, buttery toffee, butterscotch, buttered toast, coffee candies, shelled peanuts, and a beautiful rye spice with cinnamon, cloves, and a bit of black tea. Like an almond roca dipped in fire. The palate hits hard with sweet caramel, dried apples, toasted peanuts, dark dusty oak, roasted corn, and a rich fiery spice of black pepper, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. A long deep burn in the chest follows with an exhale of toasted walnuts, almond butter, burnt sugar, and a pleasant bitterness akin to a strong black coffee. A spicy, sweet explosion in a glass.

    Nose - Roasted nuts, caramel, orange peel, oak, and vanilla. Was expecting more heat/ethanol given the proof. Palate - that Beam peanut note is definitely there, along with caramel and some baking spices. The finish lingers with vanilla, oak and some cinnamon. Not as concentrated (or hot) as I've come to expect from Bookers, I'd say this is a kinder, gentler Bookers (which is not a bad thing, I quite like it).

    Pleasant fruit and honey on the nose. Some cinnamon and potpourri as well. It's like apple pie in the fall. Sweet and spicy on the palate. Lingering spice. Doughy also, salted butter., hint of dark chocolate. Seriously, pie. For adults. Good stuff. 5/8/19
