Baker's Single Barrel Bourbon 7 Year
Baker's // Kentucky, USA
Announced in October 2019, Baker's Single Barrel Bourbon is the first single barrel offering from the brand which previously was sold as a small batch bourbon. The small batch bottlings will be phased out, but Baker's Single Barrel Bourbon will still be aged for at least 7 years and be bottled at 107 proof. Each bottle will display the date barreled, the warehouse it was aged in and the exact barrel age which may be older than the 7 years stated on the bottle. Baker's Single Barrel Bourbon also has a new look with a revamped label and new bottle shape.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.

"This new version of Baker's, now a single barrel, is sure to be of interest. At seven years old and 107-proof, it's bold and spicy without being overpowering. Vanilla and a bit of char show up initially on the palate, leading into a finish with deep, sweeter notes of cherrywood and a hint of fennel. It's well-balanced with a lot of character and a full body; ideal for sipping, it would likely also make an excellent Old Fashioned."
