Booker's Bourbon Country Ham - SIPN

Booker's Bourbon Country Ham

124 Proof
Jim Beam Distillery
750 ML (Standard)
Full-bodied and flavored. Lots of caramel and toffee roasted nuts. Big barrel char on the front and mid-palates, but it?s kept in-check with the aforementioned notes. After adjusting to the proof, I get a rounded vanilla note with a layer of dried cherries or dates. Good dose of cinnamon with subsequent sips, namely as the finish begins.
Rather closed off at first. Woody vanillin and almond butter with a lightly floral corn essence. Undercurrent of cinnamon and honey. Good mid-point between grain flavor and barrel age. Dark brown sugar with hints of clove eventually develop before a strong toffee note kicks into gear.
Full-blown Kentucky hug. Oak, almond butter, and an impression of barbecue sauce. Fairly drying and throat-focused. Anise and nutmeg follow the cinnamon.
Booker's ?Ronnie's Batch? has a rich vanilla aroma with hints of brown spice enjoyable even before the first sip. It has a sweet taste that comes from the time spent aging in the Kentucky climate.
