I had a chance to try Baker's Bourbon (also a Jim Beam product) yesterday. It is a 7 year old, 107 proof bourbon. I found it very enjoyable. At 107 proof, it has a good kick to it, but it isn't the run-away freight train of Bookers (which can run as high as 127 proof). Overall, a very smooth, but full, taste. I'd love to tell you that it has a strong taste of caramel with hints of vanilla and leather (or something similar), but I have no idea where serious tasters come up with all of these flavors (undoubtedly a deficiency of my palate). Recommended.
