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 flavour 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-coloured 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.

You're never going wrong with That stuff, for me the best balance between all his family (bookers, basil hayden, knob creek)

Bakers, like most premium whiskeys, has its own unique flavor and characteristics. I am a cigar lounge proprietor and just like our taste or mood for a particular meal changes daily so does taste for cigars and whiskey (or whisky). Bakers has a sweetness of taste that reminds me of white icing birthday cake, just as Elijah Craig 12 yr tasted of Karo syrup and Eagle Rare taste of Cream Soda. Each is unique and quite enjoyable when you have a taste for them. I do not drink mixed drinks so I cannot comment on mixology (though I thoroughly enjoyed the Cantaloupe Sour served at last years Bourbon Festival Dinner by Jim Beam Co.). Bakers and Bookers while vastly different are two great bourbons from Jim Beam.

Ty,
A scotch drinker normally, I really favor Bakers over most bourbon. Drinkable without water, but more approachable and enjoyable with a splash. Fantastic value.

A big flavor bourbon with a bit of edge. It really integrates the higher ABV well. I like it best on the rocks .
Alan
Alan,
A mellow medium-bodied taste of toasted nuts, fruit, and vanilla, with a sweet, smooth, medium-long finish.
Christopher
Christopher,
The bite was a bit overpowering for me and the flavor a little flat. Will not likely get another bottle of this.

It's been a while since I've had this but the flavor spiral is correct. I remember a pretty intense sweetness and a smooth finish.

VERY good. Has a bit of a bite, but very smooth. This is my first bottle of this one, but it won't be my last!

Very well rounded bourbon! Notes of vanilla and a hint of nut, this whiskey will make dad (Jim Beam) proud.

Quite a bite, but excellent chilled.

Little rough around the edges and burns some but smooth.

One of my favorite whiskey's that you can find anywhere. Favor it over Bookers, E.H. Taylor, etc. Its easy drinking without adding water.
