One of the early big bourbons and still my favorite. Hate the pricing increase but the single barrels are all inflated now

I didn't get my bottle. This was the first time ordering. Seemed unorganized.
Tastes like coming home for the holidays! My favorite bourbon. I am never disappointed,

best in the world
Good bourbon with a bit of a bite. I love Jim Beam Black but this stuff is great. Nice and warm after few hours of cold shoveling with just a few sips of this.
Not special for the price. There’s no reason that this should be a $90 bottle in most markets. Highly overrated

Do you sell a full 30 gal wood keg of Bookers?? I am looking for a full wood barrel, if you do sell in wood barrel, please include price. Thanks Rob

Booker's is my favorite bourbon for drinking neat, or over a large cube of ice (don't want to water it down with small chunks of ice). It's smooth but with an edge that lets you know you are drinking something special. Not smoky.

Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
