  • Intro:

    The first Booker's release of 2023, this is "Charlie's Batch." Aged for 7 years, 1 month and 8 days, it's released at 126.6 proof and can typically be found around the $100 mark.

  • Nose:

    Oaky and dry on the nose with a pop of peanut, toffee, bold rich barrel char, salted caramel and espresso.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate. Full of honey, toffee, peanut brittle, salted caramel. Rich and viscous, this whiskey delivers some of the stealthiest proof among the recent Booker's.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, brimming with maple, barrel char, tobacco and sweet cream. This is a powerful pour, but the finish is super satisfying, especially for fans of pours with Booker's DNA.

  • Overall:

    It's interesting to see how the profile of Booker's meanders each year. This release seems to harken back to the more savory, caramel- and brittle-rich profile of releases in past years and will no doubt be a hit for fans of high-proof Beam distillate
