Wine Enthusiast 95 points - Booker’s (Batch #2015-01)
The first in a series of limited edition releases for 2015. Not as rich, thick, sweet, or deep as last year’s classic 25th Anniversary bottling. This one’s lighter, drier, and with more spice. Cinnamon, mint, nutmeg, licorice root, citrus, and subtle botanical notes, all wrapped up in caramel and vanilla. Dry, pleasant finish. If the 25th Anniversary bottling was an ideal digestif, this one is more suitable as an aperitif.

Iced tea color. Potent, heady, spirity bouquet
leaps from the glass in fiery, sweet, tangy notes;
inhale in small doses. On the palate, it offers high-
flying flavors of wood, smoke and wine at entry;
midpalate is sweet and corny. Memorable
finish has tastes of fruit and nuts.

|In 1992, Booker Noe introduced his own signature bourbon, Booker’s® True Barrel Bourbon. Inspired by a 200-year-old tradition, Booker’s is the first bourbon bottled straight-from-the-barrel, uncut and unfiltered. First created as a holiday gift for his special friends, Booker’s whiskey was so well-received that he decided to make it available to bourbon lovers worldwide; much to the joy of spirit connoisseurs everywhere.
