They say this is a sledgehammer Bourbon. It is. Bam!
 
Booker’s Bourbon is one of the small batch, cask strength (63,25% 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.

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
