  1. Gloin scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I like the Bookers. Nice mixture of spice and typical vanilla notes, with the spice predominating somewhat. Despite the high alcohol content, you can also drink it straight.

  2. PaulDvorak scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Squeezed, intense and full-bodied, with the aroma of drying oil, an antique furniture store, nail polish and caramel remover, the taste is buttery and dense with hints of rum woman with chocolate, black pepper, raw basement and oranges, the finish is very long with a chocolate-pepper profile.
    Great bourbon, which is served to us at full strength and for a perfectly sane money. Very strong and daring, but insanely neat and quality made.

    RATING: 88pts - [n22, t22, f22, b22] → | 86-89: Remarkable |

  3. Dyno scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    bit difficult to score, quite a flavor bomb but to me it lacks complexity compared to comparable scotch...

  6. pianoman scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Ethereal, slightly pungent. Toothpaste, a little mint, a hint of turpentine. Campari orange, dry sand. Behind it, overripe honeydew melon.
    • Taste
      Cooling. Gletschereisbonbons, aquavit, a touch of caraway. Lemon ice cream, vodka.

  7. Lorion scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Great bourbon. 84 points.
    • Nose
      Sweet vanilla. Caramel. Blood orange with sugar. The adhesive is subtle, barely noticeable, even pleasant. Added to this is thyme, it becomes more herbaceous. The alcohol cools but is tame for the paper form. Time brings some spicy cheese.

      First of all, water produces the alcohol. Then comes eucalyptus.
    • Taste
      Sweet and spicy. Juicy blood orange here too. Sparkling and full. Roasted aromas, dark chocolate.

      Water: It is sweeter and fuller with water.
    • Finish
      Long, bitter, sweet.

  8. Shalfei scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    The best of the bourbons I tested. 85 he dared him boldly. Drank clean, no water added
    • Nose
      The whole polytra of the paint and varnish shop in which the elephant climbed: lacquer, acetone, paint, sweet corn, sugar syrup, skips honey-flower component. There are insignificant vkrasiny vanilla and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Burning, the degree is certainly felt, viscous, thick, board, oak, sweetness is quite moderate.
    • Finish
      Pleuvkusie average duration, pleasant warming, varnish, polish, corn.

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    To this day one of my absolute favorite bourbons, deep, multi-layered, also tolerates many months of open time and plenty of time in the glass.
    • Nose
      Coconut bomb, full of dark honey, some hazelnut, very concentrated and strong like a strong cognac, lots of vanilla, but also a little sapphire, marzipan, cinnamon and nutmeg, some banana and glue added as well
    • Taste
      Hazelnut, full-bodied but still rounded, very deep, sapphire, peach with kernel, grapefruit, cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper and some clove, dark honey, marzipan and stollen, banana jellies in chocolate and nougat
    • Finish
      Dry sweet, full caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, peach with shell and kernel, very well reverberating, warming, long

  10. Cubey666 scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Tasted during a blind tasting competition in May/June 2016. (PO16)

    not my cup of tea, perhaps i should learn to appreciate bourbons (as was written in my notebook may 2016)
