Bookers Center Cut 2015-03 Good Bourbon, A bit too hot though

Quick Review here… Booker’s is always a solid dram, uncut, unfiltered, never bad, but trypically a little hot…

Hot nose, melon balls, french toast brioche, butterscotch lollipop, cracked black pepper and all spice.

Hot on the tongue too, but with a lot of interesting spices that permeate the entire cheeks in an extended mouthfeel that goes for just over a minute. Integrated wood tannins and oil that invites another taste as well.

This one was extremely well hyped and is enjoyable but doesn’t quite reach the hype. Even though it’s aged over seven years, it still had a lot of excess heat and hasn’t quite mellowed out enough to be worthy of expectations.  However, you still want to have seconds on it…  87/100.
