Claiming the top accolade was Booker’s Rye 13 Year Old, praised on its “brain-draining, mind-blowing” nose and finish of “amazing depth”. Murray hails it as a “staggering example of a magnificent rye, showing exactly what genius actually means. A very big, unforgettable whiskey from a very big, unforgettable man”. The Booker’s Rye began life as an experiment by Booker Noe, grandson of Jim Beam, shortly before his death in 2004, and scored 97.5 out of 100 in the Whisky Bible.
