" Lean, dry and spicy, this seven-year-old small-batch Bourbon may be reminiscent of of rye whiskey. It has a mild maple scent and complex layers of vanilla, cigar wrapper, tea and orange peel, with a spicy finish. The alcohol feels moderate, even mellow, for over 100 proof. "

" Poor Baker Beam, great-nephew of Jim Beam. His eponymous Bakers bourbon ended up a sleeper bottle alongside rightfully lauded Bookers bourbon and stellar limited editions of Knob Creek. But this year, Bakers has reason to boast, as it gets the single-barrel treatment. It will remain 107 proof and a minimum of 7 years old. However, the addition of details like barreling date, age, warehouse, and barrel number will make for fun treasure hunting. Our bottle offered a lush palate of blackberries, delicious dried fruits, licorice, and cinnamon. "
" Aromas of fruit, vanilla, and caramel. The palate has notes of tasted nuts, fruit, vanilla, and a silky texture. The finish is sweet, smooth, and medium-long. " ~ Distillery notes
Baker's BourbonView all from Baker's Bourbon
The Small Batch Bourbon Collection®--comprised of Knob Creek®, Booker's®, Basil Hayden's® and Baker's®--is a group of ultra-premium bourbon whiskies handcrafted in limited quantities from unique recipes, some dating back two centuries. They are carefully matured for exceptional quality.
Named after Baker Beam, grandnephew of the legendary Jim Beam, Baker's® Bourbon honors the family's long history and love for distilling.
Baker's Bourbon is distilled at a lower proof and barreled & aged in small batches, allowing the bourbon to pull more toasted nut, fruit & vanilla flavor from the barrel wood. Today, Baker's is still made using this very technique & is aged only in our most select rackhouses for a robust bourbon flavor with a silky, smooth finish.
