Baker’s 107 Single Barrel (1-2011, 8.5 years old). Beautiful new bottle design for the Beam higher end brand Baker’s. The release changes from a small batch to a single barrel as well. This release is 8.5 years old. Pours a lovely copper into the glass. Nose of vanilla, oak, peanut brittle. The palate hits you perfectly - some heat, but still not too hot - and has a delicate harmony of the Beam peanut character along side some sweeter notes; as you swallow toward the finish you get a rush of oak notes from the barrel almost reminiscent of a very good oaky scotch. The finish has length - peanut skin, spice. Overall a welcome refresh to this brand and a worthy addition to this segment for Beam Suntory. 92-94
