    Blindtasting. Unfortunately, I was not convinced.
    • Nose
      ... that's nail polish remover, right? Behind the real alcohol aroma one can recognize with good will some vanilla and oak. More is not there with me. With water, the nose becomes more complex, vanilla oak and a little kräutrige flavors are more effective.
    • Taste
      very strong and alcoholic, but also a clear sweetness and some oak. With water he is also in the mouth he is sweeter, even if the alcohol still bothers little.
    • Finish
      Oak, herb, something sweet, deaf mouth ...

    Unfortunately, I do not get into the topic of bourbon. Sorry!
    It will be my last. Only the Eagle Rare 10 did it to me. I always have it on the shelf. I gave up everything else. Am I not the type? But this bottle is sure to be a good bourbon. That's why I leave off the numerical rating.

    A great, not boring Bourbon that is (still) cheap and fun.
    • Nose
      Quite a lot of vanilla and creme brûlée, with a hint of fresh oak and some spicy herbs, but only very light. Over time, our Creme Brûlée gets a burnt caramel crust.
    • Taste
      Despite the strong onset due to the higher alcohol strength, the whiskey remains soft and supple, almost creamy. Mouth-filling, caramel spice, some sweetness, becoming drier towards the end.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, now take on dryness and spiciness. Delicately bitter woody notes, burnt caramel and some tart herbs now dominate.

    • Taste

    Baker’s Bourbon was named after Baker Beam who was the day-shift distiller at the main Jim Beam plant at Clermont, Kentucky, until he retired in 1992. That’s the distillery his father, grandfather, and other Beam family members built after Prohibition at the site of a gravel pit the family operated during the drought.

    Baker’s Bourbon was created as part of Beam’s Small Batch Bourbon Collection. Although 3 of the 4 whiskeys in the collection, including Baker’s, are based on the same Jim Beam mash bill, each has slightly different specifications and a different taste profile.

  10. Moritz scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Great bourbon, round and mild. No glue mark, so if you want to avoid bourbon, try this one. PLV also very good.
    • Nose
      Very mild, vanilla totally present. Caramel and also quite spicy.
    • Taste
      Balanced, intensely supported by alcohol, but by no means alcoholic. Vanilla note remains present as in the nose, with some chocolate and a light caramel note.
    • Finish
      Short and warm, barely alcoholic. In the finish fruity notes, a little apple.
