Joshua,
Definitely a sipper but the vanilla makes it nice and smooth and the flavor is very prevalent. Will definitely warm you up when it’s windy outside.

Eddie,
Now...this is for sipping. Paired with a Nicaraguan cigar is very excellent. I highly recommend this to anyone who thought about trying very good high proof Bourbon. Very easy on the pallet.

Sweet and spice with a bite that smooths into an oak finish

Spicy intense flavor with hints of carmel.

Rod,
Smooth until it bites you back! At 63%, this is my favorite so far. Not a daily sipper since it's a little pricey for me, but I definitely seek it out whenever a birthday comes along.

Henry,
Another one of my favorites! I find the nose a little softer than others, but it’s not without substance. Then comes the hammer! The front is quite hot, with an absolute explosion of spice and notable sweetness. Lots of caramel and vanilla. Finish is sweet corn to syrup, with the spice lingering to fruit (mostly orange).

Ira,
My favorite so far. Strong bite, smokey finish with caramel and vanilla and a lingering burn. Everything I expect from a bourbon.

Kurt,
This is the perfect bourbon! If it is too spicy add some Ice or a little water and opens up really nice.

Benjamin,
Not really a fan of this one. It's a bit too intense for my liking. The big spiciness isn't really my go-to for bourbon flavors...
Booker's 30th Anniversary Bourbon
Andrew,
Best bookers I’ve personally ever had, if you like a STRONG flavor profile with lots of things going on this is your bourbon... it takes a good 4-5 sips to truly get all of the flavors... so complex and beautifully done, truly a masterpiece from Fred Noe.

Jeff,
A lot of backend bite
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.7%)
John,
Strong bite and Smokey
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.7%)
Kyle,
Smells of rich toasted sugar, initial mouthfeel is thick and astringent, warms into heavy caramel and vanilla, long finish blooming into more caramel.

Sean,
Pure wonderful Kentucky!
Booker's Kentucky Chew Bourbon
Matthew,
Love this barrel proof bourbon.
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.7%)
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.
Booker's Maw Maw's Bourbon
David,
Maw maws is amazing! Great start with the perfect finish.

Amazing
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.25%)
Sean,
Excellent. I'm remarking on Batch 3 from 2018. This almost has a "thicker" mouth feel and a rich flavor profile. MSRP is about $70-80, and in this price range, I think this is one of the best offerings I've tried. Certainly not a "cheap" bottle, but the quality is really present here and you get what you pay for. I'd be happy with the quality of this bottle if I'd paid 2x the price.

Brandon,
Good taste but the alcohol is overpowering
Booker's Kentucky Chew Bourbon
Sean,
This is great. It has a very smooth mouth feel and almost feels "thicker" than normal...Don't know how else to explain it. Not cheap at $75/bottle, but great to try alongside Knob Creek, Basil Hayden's, Baker's and now Booker's. Will try alongside Little book #2.

Robert,
Very nice with ice or water, the flavors really come out. Straight, it's too much.
Booker's Kentucky Chew Bourbon
Spencer,
Great smooth taste and perfect for both sipping straight up as well as including in your favorite cocktail (makes a great Old Fashioned).

Jon,
Really nice flavor,
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.7%)
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.
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.7%)
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.
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.7%)
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.

Christina,
Currently have the Backyard BBQ iteration. Smooth, sweet and totally delicious. Can almost taste the ribs fresh from the smoker. Hard to believe it's nearly 130 proof. Highly recommend.

Domenick,
Very good and smooth
Booker's Kentucky Chew Bourbon
Alec,
Smooth as it gets. Worth the money 10/10
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (63.7%)
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
Booker's Backyard BBQ Bourbon
Troy,
Less harsh than expected for the high ABV. Toasted and slightly spicy.
Booker's Backyard BBQ Bourbon
Brad,
There is a little too much heat on the front side of this bourbon. But it is uncut and unfiltered with a strong flavor profile, which are all things I love.
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (62.7%)
Michael,
This will take some getting use to...
Booker's Backyard BBQ Bourbon
Jamie,
A bit high proof for me, but a great bourbon. Smells like marshmallows to me, lovely spice and sweetness. This is the only whiskey I have ever added a touch of water to and preferred it that way.
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (65.3%)
Joseph,
first sip is hot then mellows after, long lasting taste with good oak finish. scotch glass with some ice cubes sip with friends great stuff.
Booker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon (62.7%)
Martin,
This is very... ‘umami’-ish tasting. The meaty flavour that is introduced is very undefinable. Though I like the strong volume it isn’t a favorite.

Leigh,
Smooth and rich, oaky taste
