  • Intro:

    The first Bakers Private Selection to hit our desk, this is a single barrel for the program selected by Costco in San Diego, California. Bottled after 11 years and 8 months of aging, the addition of a single barrel program for Baker's is a bit of a red herring, but we'll welcome it all the same. Between regular Bakers, Bookers, Knob Creek, Knob Creek Selections and the addition of products like Little Book; it's tough to keep the Beam portfolio straight (or determine what product is aimed at who) - but if the result is tasty bourbon....I can't say no to that. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Loaded with caramel, a touch of maple, clover honey and lemon citrus. Faintly nutty, a wallop of oak. Cocoa, fairly rich on the nose.

  • Taste:

    Thick on the palate, rich with cocoa, fudge, honey, maple, big Beam funk, a bit of honey roasted peanuts and some nutty funk.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, a touch of heat, lots of character. Sweet nougat, decadent oak character, butter cream and sweet almond.

  • Overall:

    This is pretty impressive! Nice selection by everyone's favorite warehouse store and hopefully a testament to the strength of future barrels available to select from!
