Bakers Single Barrel Bourbon 13 Year
Classic Beam peanut funk greets my nose followed by what I refer to as “melted candy bar” notes of caramel and nougat. There are lots of sweet oak notes but for a 13-year-old product, it doesn’t smell like it sat in the barrel for that long. I’ve detected more oak from a few 5-year-old bottles of Old Forester. It’s still very pleasant and a lovely vanilla candle scent increases the depth.
It is so velvety smooth on the tongue and the oak is rich and soft at the same time. The nose had me worried but you can taste all of the age even if the nose didn’t show you it. The proof is also very easy to handle, as I expected. The flavor of tobacco amps up the depth after a couple and has this rich complexity that pairs nicely with all of the baking spices that are present. Caramel and roasted nuts are easy to identify and add sweetness with a Beam touch that is instantly recognizable.
Oak and tobacco follow through all the way to the end of the sip. I would say the finish comes off as a nice, highly-aged Knob Creek single barrel minus the heat. Caramel notes give the ending the perfect amount of sweetness. Roasted, shelled peanuts also continue to stand out throughout each part of the sip just as they should be.
