Excerpt: The whiskey finishes with more of that sweet-tart flavor, and a hint of sweetness and spice (a large rock will help draw out more of those sweet notes). Expect a decent, rolling burn from the proof.

The second release of 2021, this is Booker's Tagalong Batch. Aged for 6 years and 5 months, it's released at 127.9pf and can typically be found around the $100 mark.
Big toffee sweetness up front. Sweet buttery caramel, praline, a hint of peanut brittle and brown sugar.
Rich on the palate, noticeable wallop of cinnamon. Brown sugar, baking spice, toffee and honey. Heavy on the peanut
Long finish, a bit hot but not unreasonable for the proof. Maple, peanut and cinnamon persist in the finish.
I don’t know that I’ve ever had this much cinnamon in a Booker’s before, and I don’t know if that’s going to be a winning development for me. Very good, but starting to shift profiles in a direction I may find less enticing should it continue.
