Baker's // Kentucky, USA
Baker Beam, nephew of Jim Beam, is the namesake for this installment of the Jim Beam Small Batch Collection. Baker's is 2nd 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: One of the unsung heros from the Small Batch Collection.

"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."
