Booker's 2021-01 “Donohoe's Batch” Kentucky Straight, 62.65%

Price: $90 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

Vanilla custard, pie crust, peanut brittle, rich oak, dried oranges, old leather, and raspberry jam on the nose. Loads of sweetness on the palate, with pecan pie, dark chocolate, brown sugar, PayDay bar, and cherry cordial. The finish is long and spicy, with pine and mint fragrance alongside nutty almond notes. Add water to unlock a lovely mix of fruit, nuts, chocolate, and spice.
