Excerpt: This is definitely one of the better Booker’s releases I’ve had in the last couple years, which seem to be getting more sweet and less oaky as a general observation; that oakiness being what first drew me to Booker’s.

Bookers is a Beam/Suntory product that is released unfiltered and at casks strength.
Much like the previous Bookers, theres a massive overload of vanilla and molasses. I love this combo and it emanates from the glass pretty aggressively. Its sweet and very savory. Good to see this hasnt gone away from the other batches.
Vanilla. Molasses. Brown sugar and pepper. Of the three, this has the most ethanol burn. Whether its dis-proportional for an ABV this high, I"m not sure.
Medium to long. Hot, but not punishing. You know its barrel proof, but it doesnt beat you over the head with it. Lots of sweetness on the way out.
Much like the other Bookers, I love it. Theres a little variation but all of the usual suspects are there note-wise. All delicious.
