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.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Jim Beam has recently allowed its signature Whiskey to be used in several food products, including Bar-B-Q sauces, steak sauces, and an increasing number of specialty foods.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
