GSN Review: Baker’s Exclusive Selection

Baker’s Bourbon recently introduced Baker’s Exclusive Selection, a limited time offering of extra aged single barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey collected from some of Baker Beam’s favorite warehouses on the James B. Beam Distilling Co.’s campus in Clermont, KY. Aged for 11 years and 8 months, the extra time in the barrel along with the changing seasons allows for even more distinct notes and layers of flavor to emerge from each individual barrel of Baker’s Exclusive Selection.

Baker’s Bourbon was created in 1992 by Sixth Generation Beam Master Distiller Booker Noe as part of the original Small Batch Bourbon Collection. Baker’s Bourbon is named after Baker Beam – grand-nephew of Jim Beam and a tenured distiller who worked at the Jim Beam Distillery for 38 years. Baker’s Bourbon began a new era as an exclusively single barrel bourbon in 2019, becoming as uniquely positioned among the James B. Beam Distilling Co. portfolio as its namesake Baker Beam is in the Beam family.

GSN’s Remarks: A wonderful holiday-like nose of fresh baked desserts. Caramel, vanilla, cocoa, nuts, cinnamon, are but a few of the lovely scents on the nose. The overall flavor character follows suit, with more caramel, cocoa, roasted nut and cinnamon toast. The finish is long with a fine fadeout of those selfsame spices. A perfect release for the season. GSN Rating: A
