They say this is a sledgehammer Bourbon. It is. Bam!
 
Booker’s Bourbon is one of the small batch, cask strength (63.7% Vol.) Bourbons produced by the Jim Beam distillery. 
 
Booker Noe (Jim Beam's grandson) originally bottled this straight-from-the-barrel bourbon as gifts to close friends and family, but eventually made it available to the general public. Each barrel of Booker's bourbon was hand-selected by Noe and was aged at the center of the rackhouse, where the company says that the temperature and humidity are the most favorable for fine Bourbons.

Kyle
Kyle,
Smells of rich toasted sugar, initial mouthfeel is thick and astringent, warms into heavy caramel and vanilla, long finish blooming into more caramel.
 
Lewis
Lewis,
This is a perfect combination of spicy/punch and mellow vanilla flavor. The longer it sits in the air, the better it tastes. I added a few drops to open it a little and lower the initial punch.

Robert,
Very nice with ice or water, the flavors really come out. Straight, it's too much.

Really nice flavor,

George,
Literally burns your taste buds off... as someone who prefers to sip neat this stuff is hard to handle sometimes. There are much better examples of cask strength with better flavor and more controlled burn and finish.
 
Laura
Laura,
Harsh and high alcohol content to start, so it is one of the rare bourbons my husband actually prefers with ice instead of straight, but once you've pumped the brakes a bit it is quite delicious.
 
PAUL
PAUL,
This is a nice occasion sipping Bourbon, to be enjoyed over a conversation, neat. There is nothing subtle about any aspect of this stuff. The sweetness, accompanied by the spice & heat & complexity of its long finish, is intense. I always make sure I have a bottle in my cabinet.

Donald,
Not good!! Taste of camp fire like drinking a log off the fire. Very harsh to the nose and smoke infused. Did not care for this at all
