True-blue American Bourbon fit for Cognac lovers. 

Baker’s Bourbon is named after Baker Beam—the grandnephew of Jim Beam himself. So it comes at no surprise that Baker’s Bourbon is a subsidiary of Beam Suntory. It is one of their four “small batch series” Bourbons, all of which are highly rated, delicious, and pack a unique character. 
 
If you meet other Bourbon lovers at a tasting, it is not uncommon to hear Baker’s described as “Bourbon for Cognac lovers”. This is not surprising since it has a smooth, sophisticated flavor profile and a creamy texture that really stands out. While some Bourbons taste like a beefy day working in a lumberyard, Baker’s stands out as a firm handed dinner jacket sipper. It’s the self-made entrepreneur who moves seamlessly from his crew on the production floor to attending the opera, where no one questions the drink in his hand. 
 
Now, for the nuts and blots. This Mahogany-colored dram is aged for 7 years and comes out of the bottle at 53.5% ABV (107 proof). The strength fits the dram like a glue... but it does go well with some ice. Don't overthink it. Pour yourself a drink, take a second to steel yourself and then cast your calm gaze upon the envious eyes of all the wannabes and pretenders at the party. Your party.

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Ratings & Reviews
Lucas
Lucas,
Sweet and then spicy with a noticeably high proof
 
Sean
Sean,
Very smooth. In the spectrum of Jim Beam products I think this is a bit of an afterthought, and not priced well, although it is a very nice bourbon. I personally prefer barrel strength Knob Creek which is 120 vs 107 proof and about $15 less per bottle. Other than that, Booker's (also barrel proof) is about $20 more than this per bottle and even smoother. So this kind of gets to be the orphan bottle that either needs to drop in price to be competitive, or put on its big boy pants and compete with Little Book or Booker's at a slightly lower price point than these two.

Benjamin,
This is probably my favorite offering to date coming out of the Jim Beam distillery. The higher abv doesn't really cause as much of a burn as I thought it might. Very smooth and a nice, complex flavor profile.

First thing I taste is caramel sweetness and spice even though this is 53% it doesn't have a long burn I really like this and will definitely pick up another bottle

Robert,
The sweet notes in this thin bourbon come out quite apparently, and the high proof make a little go a long way.

Brian,
Sweet and complex. Better over ice.
 
Chris
Chris,
This is a decent bourbon but a really strong burn which isn’t my favorite. I used a cube with this one which I don’t usually do and that really helped the taste

Charlie,
Flavor spiral is dead on. First with the sweet and caramel then the spicy comes on fast. The nutty slightly charred oak is hidden behind that spice.
