  • Intro:

    Bookers is a Beam/Suntory product that is released unfiltered and at casks strength.

  • Nose:

    Maple sugar bomb. Smells like a great waffle breakfast. Theres a lot more alcohol but I still feel like I get a lot less from this nose compared to ABunadh, which is one of the only other barrel proofers Ive had besides the Bookers here. I like it, and I want more of it.

  • Taste:

    Both the pepper and vanilla are more subdued here with a massive landslide of maple and molasses. Vanilla sneaks in at the end with some oaky wood to finish up. Still caters to my favorite bourbon profile very much. Yum.

  • Finish:

    A little short, and a little hot, but not unreasonable given the proof. Sweetness continues.

  • Overall:

    This is a little off profile from other Bookers Ive reviewed, but not by much. Still enjoyable.

  • Score:

    7
