Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #630038 95 points Wine Enthusiast

 This uncut, barrel-strength bourbon is bold and flavorful. The caramel aroma is rich and luxe. On the palate, it’s quite tannic and drying, but the flavor shines through, showing toffee, caramel and dried cherry, with a spicy finish of clove, dried fig and date. The alcohol feels remarkably balanced despite the high proof. It needs no adornment: just add a chunk of ice and enjoy. (KN)  (9/2014)

 If Picasso sketched bourbon, it would look like Booker’s, with deep golden and auburn hues. But higher-proof color can deceive. Not here. Think bourbon warehouse: oak, caramel, tobacco leaf, cinnamon, vanilla; floral with hints of honey and blueberry. And then it really comes alive. Oh, baby! Candy corn, crème brûlée, maple syrup, nutmeg, and traces of chipotle and cayenne. The proof strength doesn’t show. I recommend this batch neat for full, unrelenting flavor.

Wine Spectator

 Here's your introduction to the Beam nose: cinnamon, hot and dusty corn, short snort of vanilla. A sip gives you powerful but smooth corn and more cinnamon, finely polished oak, a hot twist of mint. Alcohol heat permeates this barrel-proof monster; water it carefully to bring out more of the mint and thin the corn. Bourbon right from the barrel, as Booker Noe liked it. Proof of batches varies between 120 and 130.  (2/2012)

Booker's is just bourbon you know. It's not magic. It's just whiskey. It happens to be really good high proof whiskey. It's happens to be age stated Kentucky bourbon. Booker Noe happens to have been pretty bad ass and this just so happens to be his legacy. Just like Booker it's big and bold. Just like Booker it's both spicy and bit sweet. Just like Booker it's the real deal no gimmicks. If all Bourbon could be this honest we'd all be better off. It also happens to be just $50...for now. Now that's MAGIC.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
