The most embarrassing experience ever!
I recently purchased a bottle of Bookers in Israel in a store that I happened to go to very far from my home.I was visiting friends in a totally different neighborhood,I don't even remember the name of the store or have the bag that I got when I purchased it nor the receipt.We had dinner guests over, I opened the bottle as I normally do, and the WHOLE CORK DISINTEGRATED! IT TOTALLY FELL APART! I WAS SO EMBARRASSED! I've used Bookers before and never had a problem. This must be a defective bottle! I can't seem to find anyone to talk to about it-...I really feel I deserve a significant compensation! I f anyone who reads this can please e-mail me name and phone number of someone of importance in Bookers taht can compensate me, I'd appreciate it! I don't feel what has happened to m e is right, and I'm certain all who read this agree, and someone will help me out. Sincerely, Mrs. Cohen at email@example.com
Smoky nose for Bourbon
I've been drinking this for almost five years now, on occasional basis of course since I am not getting any younger and it has been my favorite. You can feel and taste its flavor of rich, full bodied with an intense following and hints of dark chocolate and fruit. I think after having been said, I would go and have a sip!
its taste and flavor
The taste of Bourbon obviously differs between people, but I personally have found Bookers to be a Bourbon at the top of it's class, no other drop comes close! Silky smooth with a refined taste that will have you wanting more, but be careful, this drop packs a mighty punch if not consumed in moderation. I started drinking Bookers in the USA where it retails for around $30 to $40 (Philadelphia), but with our over-taxed alcohol system in Australia expect to pay around $90!
Over priced in Australia.

Intense Bourbon for People who know.
A very good drop, this bourbon is intense with strong pepper and nutty flavour. It would be a shame to mix this fine bourbon with a split. I would suggest neat or over ice is best, then sit back inhale the nip and enjoy the aroma before sipping. It is a little expensive, but hey it is almost twice as strong as average bourbons and is of far greater quality.
Intense and complex flavours
A little expensive
Smooth and Kick
You cant go past this for a silky smooth drop with a hefty kick at 65.9% alcohol. Goes great on the rocks or even swirled down with some dry. Bam!! price is around $80-$100 per bottle.
But well worth it if you have the extra coin ;)) ;))
Questions & Answers
I have a Bookers Bourbon Batch no B-K-28-84 #01877 . Could you advise of approx. value please. From memory this bottle was given to me as a 21st present (34 yrs ago) and might end up drinking with my son when he turns 21 (18mths time).Cheers
Did you ever get a response to this query KNT? I have a bottle from exactly the same batch I got for my 21st birthday (25yrs ago) and would love to know if it has appreciated in value or not.
i have a bottle of bookers bourbon over 7 years 10 months old proof 125.6 with batch no. C89- E- 26 1 have had this bottle since 2011 how much is it worth? thanks col.
Hi Colin, Wine when stored in the right conditions will improve in flavour as it ages in the bottle, but unfortunately this is not the case with Whiskey.
In the wooden barrel Whiskey gets it's nose and flavour from the wood, but when bottled Whiskey stops maturing.
So to answer your question, your Bookers should taste the same now as it would have 7 years ago, so the only added value would be for a Collector looking for an older style bottle or label.
As far as value goes, you could try listing it on eBay (you would have to list it as an auction for 'the glass bottle' if you don't have a Liquor License), but you would probably get better value sipping it yourself :)
What is the alcohol content
Alcohol by volume ABV can vary with Booker. It depends on the cask strength and how much alcohol is lost to the angels during the ageing process ! But you will generally find that Bookers will be between 62 % and 65%
