Long story short: With Bookers Single Barrel we get a story of two worlds. When enjoyed neat, the robust and thrilling flavors and aromas of charcoal and smoke dominate. When a few liberal drops of water are added, the bourbon opens up its heavenly gates. We are then introduced to the sweetest of flavors, like walking into a busy bakery. Loads of dark chocolate and caramelized, nutty flavors are unleashed. For all intents and purposes, this is not a beginners bourbon. Rather, this whiskey takes you on a mind-bending journey from the cask to the bottle.
