Aged for seven years and bottled at 107 proof, this bourbon earned a score of 90-95 points from Wine Enthusiast, which called it “superb”. Baker’s 7 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is named after Baker Beam, the grand nephew of of the legendary Jim Beam. The bourbon is made from a mash dominated by corn and fermented using a special strain of jug yeast that has been in the Beam family for over six decades. Beam began harvesting corn and set forth a family tradition by distilling the excess grains he harvested into Whiskey. Since then, seven generations of the Beam family have been involved in Whiskey production for the eponymous company.
