WHISKEY DREAMS – Booker’s “Sip Awhile” 2017-04

One of my older boys got me this bottle of Booker’s as a father’s day gift. I have to be honest, it is one of the best father’s day gifts I’ve ever gotten.

I was waiting for a quiet weekend to try this Booker’s “Sip Awhile”, and this weekend was it.

First off, this is not a whiskey for a beginner. The oak and caramel is going to be washed out by the high alcohol content and I’m not sure if a new whiskey drinker is going to appreciate all the depth of flavors this whiskey has to offer.

That being said, if you enjoy bourbon, this Booker’s “Sip Awhile’ is a must have in terms of the experience, as well as in terms of a bottle to keep on your shelf.

“Ship Awhile” more than earned its 93/100 score. Now all I have to do is control myself and not drink the bottle before I can find another.

Pros

  • Rich oak flavors.
  • Smooth caramel that washes over your tongue.

Cons:

  • Is getting harder to find.
  • The 128.1 proof can overpower the rich oak and caramel flavors
