  3. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Aroma:
    Sweet, caramel and vanilla, canned fruits in syrup, oak. (slightly musty)
    a little owl, only at the first tasting

    Taste:
    fiery, sparkling onset, spicy, oak, slightly stuns the palate.

    finish:
    slightly spicy, oak, sweetish and warming finish

    With a little water, soft, sugar sweet, slightly spicy, finally softly fading ...

  4. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A true and typical bourbon. If you like that, that's pretty good. For me, this gives an 87-point pleasure.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Ok, unmistakably a bourbon. Some caramel, popcorn, Grain flavors. Fresh, but not heated. Oak discreetly, with time grainy-malty.
    • Taste
      87 87
      In the taste more intense grainy notes, Ppcornsweet, slightly stronger oak, spice. Intense, not overheated on the palate, pleasant.
    • Finish
      87 87
      In the medium-length finale, the "grainy maltiness" (I just can not think of a better term) becomes stronger again, the popcorn sweetness remains before the oak is added.

    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 ...

  7. Schlossgespenst scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    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.

  8. DenisLeonov scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Taste

    • Finish

  9. DrBardamu scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    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.
