Booker's 2017-04 “Sip Awhile,” 64.05%

Price: $73 Issue: Spring 2018 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Rosewater, almond extract, dark cherries, roasted almonds, and caramelized sugar start this truly splendid aromatic whiskey. Marzipan, pecan pie, chocolate Moon Pie, Bavarian cream, butterscotch, and fried dough with powdered sugar follow. This remarkable whiskey finishes long and strong with more fried dough.
