Review #41 | /r/Bourbon Review #22 – Booker’s 2014-06 (Unnamed)
The Schtick: Booker’s is a Beam/Suntory product that is released unfiltered and at casks strength.
ABV: 63.85% ABV
Age: 7 Years, 2 Months, 14 Days
Nose: There’s more sugar notes, mainly brown sugar and molasses and a bit less pepper and wood.
Taste: Sweeter and a more buttery profile. I really like this, and while it feels a bit hotter, it’s still very delicious. Lot’s of sweetness and vanilla + maple. There’s a bit less peppery wood and the alcohol bite seems better blended despite the (minute) increase in proof.
Finish: Longer and much hotter. This surprised me based on the mouth feel but this still wouldn’t deter me from picking up this dram frequently.
Overall: Still a great bottle. The profile is very consistent.
Thanks for reading!
