Day 121 Drink: Baker's Kentucky Straight Bourbon
With the 136th Kentucky Derby taking place today, Bourbon is the logical Drink of the Day. Named after Baker Beam, grand nephew of the legendary Jim Beam, Baker's Bourbon is 7-year-old 107-proof whiskey. Baker's Bourbon utilizes a special strain of jug yeast that has been in the family for over 60 years.
Baker's Bourbon is a rich sweet caramel nose with a solid hint of maple sugar. Classic amber Boubon color. Flavor is full and aggressive with plenty of sweet whiskey notes and a healthy oak note.
