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.

One thing that makes Baker’s unique is there’s not one particular location where it ages. With four campuses, a lot of differences can occur inside each barrel. For example, airflow, location of the rickhouse and dump date all play a part. Each barrel is tested. Only those that meet the highest quality standards are bottled.

Mashbill: 77% Corn, 13% Rye, 10% Malted Barley
Proof: 107

Tasting Notes:

The beauty of single barrel bourbons lies in the intensities and flavors that change with each barrel. So, one bottle might be smokey, while another might be more floral or peppery. While every barrel of Baker’s offers a unique tasting journey, you can expect some defining characteristics. Here are a few:

Nose: Fruit, vanilla and caramel.

Palate: Medium bodied with flavors of oak, toasted nuts and vanilla.

Finish: Robust flavors sit on the tongue for a while, warm and rounded.

Awards/Reviews

Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2023

93 Points & #16 Top 20 Whiskies of 2019 - Whisky Advocate:
"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." 

93 Points - Vinepair

"A recent revamp saw this expression lose its wine-bottle-style packaging and notably transitioned it to a single barrel offering. At seven years old and 53.5 percent ABV, it is bold and full of character but doesn’t overwhelm. The palate and nose have a concentrated, sweet and spicy profile, but are slightly less fruity than the previous iteration."

92 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2022

"A toasted nut and honeyed nose, gentle, with hints of lightly warmed fruits and creamy vanilla that delivers complexity and earthy notes on the palate."

"From the first sips of this tasting I was awarded with multiple layers of flavors and textures. Baker’s Single Barrel Bourbon grants a glimpse into the fire of inspiration that the distillers built into this pleasant sipper crafted with boisterous and bold flavors for a more adventurous bourbon drinker."
-The Whiskey Wash
"A plethora of flavors opens up the palate, starting with slightly burnt caramel and spiced vanilla, which mix with green peppercorn and rye spice. Exploring more reveals a trace of sweet syrup which adds a hint of sweetness. While the nose may hide the proof, the boldness of the sip is revealed here and helps to pull forward and exemplify all of the flavors." - Breaking Bourbon
