Bakers 107. One of Beam or now Suntory-Beam's Small Batch products. Allegedly to be JB Whites mashbill and yeast just aged longer, in a better part of the warehouse and bottled at a higher proof. Reviewed New Years eve.

Color: Orange-Copper

Nose: Starts with maple syrup and wood polish. Tightly held nose. With time (as always): Notes of vanilla, brown sugar, ripe bananas, roasted nuts and sticky caramel. Sweet and tasty.

Body: Syrupy and heavy. Slow and thick legs meander down the sides of the glass.

Taste: The flavors follow suit with the nose except for soft oak and spice adds balance. It begins to get drier and spicier as it's on it's way out.

Finish: Drying and lingering with pepper and spices (cloves and cinnamon).

Overall: A tasty Beam product. I want to try Bookers next.
