Review #41 – Booker’s 2014-06 (Unnamed)

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!
