What's in a name? Baker's 7 Year Old whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Baker's 7 Year Old whisky, rather than whiskey.
Nose: Fruity, caramel, toffee, dark fruit, spice.
Palate: Nutty, with good grip. Plenty of tangy fruit with vanilla spice and rounded char.
Finish: Rounded, good length, sweetness and coffee.
as like MM's description, very very nice. Has an interesting cognac note to it, lots of nice nuts and fruit, as well as the standard bourbon note of oak vanilla. Has a feel of real fire on the tongue, may put some people off but I Love a whisky that tells me it has a high alcohol content. Though if you find it off putting add a few drops to it to cool the smouldering lump that used to be your tongue down. This bourbon goes well with just a few drops of water.
