Booker’s 25th Anniversary Review

This was a limited NAS Booker’s release that is bottled at 65.4% (although the age/ABV range varied).

Nose: Super nutty like a bag of trail mix up front. Yeast, vanilla, burnt sugar and a hint of strawberries.

Palate: Very sweet – lots of caramel. The oak comes through more than nose and vanilla persists.

Finish: Very short – oak and sweet caramel fade quickly.

Rating: 87/100 – I noticed this one improved a bit after being opened for a month or two.

Value for the money: At retail ($99) it was an ok buy, but secondary is $300+ which is too much. Save some money and buy a regular Booker’s for $50.
