Baker’s Kentucky Straight Whiskey – An excellent small-batch bourbon, named for the grand nephew of Jim Beam, Baker Beam. This is a well-aged expression that makes use of a special strain of jug yeast which the Beam family has made use of for over 60 years. Baker’s Kentucky Straight Whiskey is one of the four small-batch bourbon offerings distilled by Jim Beam. This spirit seems to be the least preferred bourbon in the family, especially when compared to Knob Creek, Basil Hayden’s, and Booker’s. However, Baker’s may soon be climbing to the top of your wish list. Traditionally, the spirit bottled as Baker’s small-batch bourbon is a combination of approximately 200 barrels. Baker’s Bourbon recently received a facelift.
Baker’s Kentucky Straight Whiskey – While the notes of every barrel of Baker’s offer a unique tasting journey, you can expect a few defining characteristics. Fruit, vanilla, and Carmel on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with flavors of oak, toasted nuts, and vanilla. The finish is robust, medium-long, and warmly rounded.
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.
