Baker’s 13 Year Old Single Barrel Bourbon has returned to retail shelves.
Originally released in 2019 when the brand reemerged as a single barrel product, Baker’s 13 Year Old ages at least six additional years than the brand’s traditional offering.
“Baker’s Bourbon celebrates the individual characteristics in each and every barrel, and this 13 Year Old expression takes that experience even further as the distinct flavors from the barrel develop over time,” says Fred Noe, Seventh Generation Master Distiller. “We received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback the first time we released this 13-year-old edition, and I’m proud to bring it back for whiskey fans who appreciate something special from Baker’s as a true gem within our Small Batch portfolio.”
While the notes of every barrel of Baker’s 13 Year Old will be unique, fans can expect a few defining characteristics, according to the company:
- Proof: 107
- Age: Minimum of 13 Years
- Nose: Fruit, vanilla and caramel
- Palate: Medium-bodied with flavors of oak and toasted nuts, with vanilla and fruity notes
Fans can also learn more about what shapes the tasting notes of their bottle by heading to the Single Barrel Journey page on the Baker’s website. After entering the serial number found on the bottle’s neck tag, Baker’s fans can follow along to see how weather, length of aging and warehouse location affected the barrel and liquid of their personal bottle.
Baker’s 13 Year Old is now available in limited quantities in select U.S. states, with a suggested retail price of $129.99 for a 750-ml. bottle.
