They say this is a sledgehammer Bourbon. It is. Bam!
 
Booker’s Bourbon is one of the small batch, cask strength (62.7% 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.

Smoky deep amber orange.

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

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 flavor.

Matthew,
I get a cinnamon taste that is perfectly spicy. Def do not mix this bourbon as I believe it should stand alone.

Crow,
My “go to Bourbon”. Great vanilla taste. I would drink this if is was alcohol free.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Another nice pour that I enjoy. Just not a fan of the high price. Could be a littler smoother on the finish for a bourbon of that price.
