Excerpt: Baker's is a nice bourbon from the folks at Jim Beam. But it suffers from a lack of defining character to set it apart from the other offerings in the Jim Beam Small Batch lineup, making it a somewhat pricey option when Beam has better balanced or less expensive bottles available that cover the same flavor profiles.

This is a 7yr Beam product released at 107pf.
Cinnamon, leather and some weird oak funk. Not as much Beam peanut butter funk as I expected.
Caramel and vanilla, theres a good deal of maple and oak as well. Some odd funkiness on the back of my tongue, almost vegetal but overall it drinks like a standard beam mashbill bourbon.
Medium to long, longer than expected. Lots of cinnamon and molasses here as well as that nice peanut brittle.
It seems that I go on and off on a daily basis on whether I love or hate this bottle. After sitting down with it for a while, its a good $35 bourbon. Not quite bookers but not every day is a Bookers day. Its not amazing but its not terrible either.
