I checked the BOTM and searched (I love to research) but I couldn't find anything about the style of Bookers. Is it a wheater or ryed bourbon?

Thanks,

The other Mark Brown

To the best of my knowledge Beam makes no wheated bourbon...at least none that they sell under their own labels anyway...so Bookers is a ryed bourbon.

Thanks, Timothy. I love Stagg and thought about buying Booker's since it's barrel-proof. Though I am a fan of wheathers, I really enjoyed Stagg (ryed bourbon).

Do you know if there is more of a strong rye flavor like WT or more of a Stagg-like flavor?

There's quite a bit of a Jim Beam-like flavor, which means it contains rye but not much of a rye flavor note.

Thanks Chuck. That clears things up. Believe it or not, I haven't had just regular old Jim Beam. However, I've had Knob Creek which is a JB product and I liked it. I'll have to pick some up.

bookers is by far my favorite from Jim Beam. I really like it and it is worth a try. I dont think you will be sorry if you like Stagg. Actually opened a bottle tonight. Costco has a 3 bottle set of Booker, Baker, and Basil for $99.

Thanks for the info. I tried Costco here and they don't have a set, but that was a couple months ago. I'll try calling again.

2 out of 3 aint bad. I'd rather pay $66 and leave the Basil behind.

Send the BH to me... I'm one of the few who is willing to admit that I like it!
