ABV: 55%

Score: 93 Points

This Bourbon gets its name from the tiny town of Boston, Kentucky, where Beam’s Booker Noe Distillery and warehouses are located. It’s a 17-year-old Bourbon distilled from the same batch as the Hardin’s Creek Clermont and Frankfort editions, but was matured in the Boston rickhouses.

The nose is fruity and light with touches of peaches, apricots, red apples, and dried flowers. The taste is thick and chewy with a slow buildup of black pepper balanced by honey, vanilla, peaches, apricots, and red apples. The finish is long and fruity with a touch of lingering spice.
