Nose: peanuts, peanuts and more peanuts. Then chocolate and cinnamon.
Palate: Honey roasted peanuts covered in chocolate turns to heat and vanilla and then cinnamon candy. Coats well.
Finish: chocolate and cinnamon. Not as long as expected considering the 126.4 proof.
Been wanting to try one of the Bookers collection bottles for some time now so when I saw this one last year I picked it up. Finally polished off enough open bottles in my bar to justify opening a new one so here goes…
First thought upon taking a whiff is wow that’s definitely a Knob Creek product. Smells so good. Anyone who says peanuts/peanut brittle is spot on! Smells so good. I tried this right after a Calumet 14 and this blew it away.
The taste is everything Beam you would want and expect from it. Very similar to the KC 120 bottles but in my opinion a step up.
If you want to splurge and get the fancy box and bottle with wax to impress your non-whiskey drinking friends go for it. This to me is a great whiskey but the price for me is a tad higher than I like to spend on a bottle. I try to limit myself to $60-70 but this was on my list to try for quite some time so I’m glad I splurged.
