Tasting Notes

"With Booker's bourbon, one expects a high-proof flavor bomb, and this first release for 2019 delivers. It's full of charred oak, vanilla, chestnut, and caramel, with a powerful spiciness that lingers on the finish. Drink it straight, or soften it with a bit of water to open it up. Either way, this is an excellent bourbon fitting the Booker's profile."
