Booker's 2020-01 “Granny's Batch” Kentucky Straight Bourbon, 63.2%

Price: $90 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton




A sack of dried corn and a basket of roasted peanuts go hand in hand with iced tea, Coca-Cola, dark berries, caramel, and earthy clay barn floor. Unsurprisingly brawny and chewy in the mouth, it's packed with dark chocolate-covered peanuts, cola, cooked cherries, chocolate tart, and tingling spice that carries well into the finish, which also keeps up the dark fruit and peanut flavors.
