  • Intro:

    The second Booker's release of 2022, this is "The Lumberyard Batch." Aged for 7 years, 1 month and 7 days, it's released at 124.8 proof and can typically be found around the $100 mark.

  • Nose:

    Bold, funky, toffee. Sweet and complex, there's tons of nutty funk, oak, toffee and a good deal of caramel and tannin.

  • Taste:

    Creamy on the palate, rich and viscous. A good deal of caramel. graham cracker, pepper and oak. Hefty ethanol presence on this one, although its matched with plenty of flavor and character. Touch of cinnamon.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, sweet and oaky, drier than recent batches. Peanut brittle, cocoa, a touch of ginger, ethanol and caramel.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is a killer pour that leans a touch more into oak and bold character compared to 2022-01. For fans of Booker's who wish recent batches were a little more tannic and dry to offset the bold caramels and dessert notes, you'll be pleased.
