Baker's 13 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Baker's Bourbon, part of the esteemed Jim Beam Small Batch Collection, has always been a beacon for bourbon enthusiasts. With the introduction of the 13 Year Single Barrel edition, Baker's has elevated its game, offering a more mature, refined, and exquisite version of its classic bourbon.
Background: Named after Baker Beam, grandnephew of the legendary Jim Beam, Baker's Bourbon is renowned for its robust flavor derived from a special yeast strain that has been in the family for generations. The transition to a single barrel expression ensures that each bottle offers a unique tasting experience, while the extended aging process of 13 years imparts deeper oak notes and a richer flavor profile.
- Nose: A symphony of caramel and vanilla, with hints of toasted nuts, dried fruit, and aged oak.
- Palate: Rich and full-bodied. Dark chocolate and cherry notes are complemented by the spicy warmth of cinnamon and clove. The age shines through with deep undertones of leather, tobacco, and a touch of molasses.
- Finish: Long, smooth, and warming. A lingering sweetness is accompanied by a spicy kick and a subtle smokiness.
Characteristics: Bottled at 107 proof, Baker's 13 Year Single Barrel retains its robust character while offering a smooth sipping experience. The high rye content in its mash bill adds a delightful spiciness, which is beautifully balanced by the sweetness from the extended aging process.
Packaging: The bottle design pays homage to Baker Beam, showcasing his image and signature, and emphasizing the single barrel nature of this special release.
eans inside each bottle is a big, bold bourbon, full of tiny subtle details that change barrel to barrel.
