    Thoughts on Booker's

    Worth the $35? What's it comparable to?

    Thoughts on Booker's

    It's 6-8 yr old barrel proof whiskey that's available with no hassle. I always have it around. Some batches are knock your socks off and some are go hum. For 35, I'd have no reservations. At the end of the day though, my opinion is just that, you have to experience yourself to know.

    $60 here in Seattle and then you add our insane taxes.

    Holy crap, $35, send me a PM and share the wealth on your shop, I don't think I've ever seen it for less than $55.

    Now that I think about it, I bet that this guy means Baker's and not Booker's. I just can't believe Booker's would be that cheap anywhere.

    Booker's can be found that cheap in Minnesota according to Boots so maybe Dave is also from MN?

    I stand corrected then!

    Damn, a $35 Booker's would be my go-to.

    Re: Thoughts on Booker's

    cheapest Ive ever seen it was $43, and I have it regularly for that....but its usually $45ish here. Easily available barrel proof 7ish year old bourbon....its very respectably priced either way
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    $93 locally

    Just started buying it recently after a couple years off it, I think a had a couple poor bottles and it turned me off,, then KC dragged me back into the JB family and now I dont mind it again, not many barrel proof options in Australia so I am finally apprciating it for what it is.
