Baker's Small Batch Bourbon
Baker's // Kentucky, USA
Baker Beam, nephew of Jim Beam, is the namesake for this installment of the Small Batch Collection. Baker's is the second youngest, but next to highest proof in the collection and utilizes a yeast strain that has been in the family for more than 60 years. Note: As of October 2019, Beam announced that this Small Batch Bourbon would now be sold as a single barrel offering. The bourbon will still be aged for at least 7 years and be bottled at 107 proof.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.

"Nose is nutty with butterscotch, leather and orange. Palate has a very interesting sweet/spicy battle going on with a middle of tongue burn. Expect leather, orange, black peppercorn, vanilla and cinnamon. Moderate finish continues with cinnamon, caramel and more orange."
