About the Whiskey:
Maintaining its 107 proof and minimum seven-year age statement, Baker’s will also debut a new bottle design, featuring details about the individual barrel, including the age, the warehouse in which it was aged and the date it was barreled.
Baker’s Bourbon is distilled at a lower proof than most whiskies from the James B. Beam Distilling Company, which contributes to its rich flavor, the company says. As a single-barrel bourbon, the tasting notes will vary from barrel-to-barrel and bottle-to-bottle, but some of the defining characteristics include:
Nose: Fruity, caramel, toffee, dark fruit, spice.
93 Points & #16 Top 20 Whiskies of 2019 - Whisky Advocate:
"Poor Baker Beam, great-nephew of Jim Beam. His eponymous Baker’s bourbon ended up a sleeper bottle alongside rightfully lauded Booker’s bourbon and stellar limited editions of Knob Creek. But this year, Baker’s 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." — Jeffery Lindenmuth
