Booker's, from the Beam family of distillers, is quite possibly the finest whiskey I have ever tasted--large or small batch.

The taste is so finely honed, so clean and so smooth that you won't realize the 125 proof until you try to walk away from a shot.

This whiskey is raw, yet mellow. Potent, yet smooth and it has one of the cleanest finishes you could ask for.

Strong aromas of oak and charcoal compliment the fruity tobacco and vanilla flavors. To be honest, I'm having trouble describing such an amazing elixir through words---just go by a bottle.

I found it difficult to build a steady taste up in my mouth because the alcohol got in the way so much. My tongue went numb. This is one of the only bourbons I've had to add water to. A few drops go a long way in helping to crack it open, and when you do, it's clear why this bourbon is so well-regarded.
