      Listen up. This shit is amazing. Belle Meade Cask Strength. Oily mouth. Vanilla and caramel light brown sugar. Medium finish

        Picked this up today from The Wine Guy (only a couple bottles left)...very pleasant nose with strong caramel and vanilla. The mouth is strong, the 100 proof is very present, but it finishes pretty smooth. For $80, I like the Stagg Jr much better.

            Never heard of it; did you buy a case? Where'd you get it? I may be heading to The Wine Guy later, I'll have to look for it

              Bookers batch 2019-01 - Theresa’s Batch - floral nose with vanilla. Spicy oak with hint of vanilla and caramel/light brown sugar. Quick finish to me for such a high proof.

              overall - 3/5. Price point $80 is mostly due to packaging. Kinda disappointed in this bourbon overall due to the cask strength not as flavorful as other cask strength bourbons I have. Additionally it wasn’t very oily at all (I like em oily - that’s what she said) for a 62.95% batch. It’s an easy sipper though and I got lit last night after my classes. Wouldn’t buy again unless it was in the $50-$60 range.

              I ended up picking up another batch 12 Stagg Jr today to correct the universe.

                Just picked up some Blantons for $75. This had better be good, lol.

                  Blanton's is very good!


                  Sorry to hear that the bookers is disappointing; I've found them to be hit or miss depending upon the batch. Stagg Jr...mmmmmm!

                    Is $75 a decent price for it?

                      Yes; there are a lot of places inflating the price and asking $99

                        The reviews on the Theresa batch seemed good. Wished it expanded on that vanilla and was oily at the 62% abv. It was good. Wasn’t great. I think the Belle Meade is a fantastic cask strength. Stagg Jr batch 12 is a wonderful punch in the face with maple brown sugar. Compared to those two it wasn’t able to compete.

                          Locally that’s an ok price. Many are selling $99.

                          I like Blanton’s. It’s low key and has a nice creamy vanilla caramel flavor.
