Booker's 2015-4 Oven Buster Batch 6yr 5mo 20days 63.5

Nose: Orange marmalade, amaretto, toasted bread,coffee, brown sugar, cocoa nibs

Taste: Wood, raisin, pecan pie, oiled leather. Hints of chocolate, orange, and honey.

Finish: Cinnamon and vanilla. Barrel char follows with hints of tea leaves. Surprisingly tame for the proof.

Balance: Excellent overall with bold and full flavors.

Final Thoughts: I've loved this bourbon from the start. I've tasted from or purchased 6 bottles of this batch and it is consistently excellent. If you can still find a bottle, buy it! This is a top tier bourbon for around $50.

For me, sweet orange in whisky is a great treat. With tea and cinnamon too, this sounds a bit like sweetened orange spice tea...with lots of other stuff thrown in.

@newreverie, thanks for your very nice review.

@Victor I thought that I had seen the last of this great bourbon until the Texas Whiskey summit, but I went to the lake house for Thanksgiving and found another bottle that I stashed away!

I just checked my bottle that I purchased in Nova Scotia last year ($62 CAD) and it is this batch. I will look forward to it when I finish my batch of CO5-A-12 which is fantastic, albeit opened for almost 1 1/2 years now.
