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 favourable for fine Bourbons.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour
Smoky deep amber orange.

Huge but soft. Vanilla, honey, molasses, orange, tropical fruits, black banana and spice. Meaty aroma and cedar.

Massive and intense. Spicy, sweet - almost liqueur like and hot. Blackberry and burnt sugar. Oak, then dryness (tannin, tobacco). 
 
Finish
Hot, long, spicy and intense. Almond, wood, corn, a touch of maple syrup, pepper.
 
Comment
While it is not necessary to cut the bourbon with water, a splash or two of distilled water is recommended (by Booker Noe) to unlock some of the flavour.
