(Notes) For some reason each time we have Baker’s someone makes a comment about how it brings the sensation of drowning. The weird part is that it’s always someone new who couldn’t have heard it from us before. This is the whiskey you drink when you’re mad and ready to fight, and you’re going to feel it when you drink it.
This is a high-proof whiskey, so yeah, it’s going to burn when you drink it. For what it is though, it’s a delicious whiskey. It’s got some complexity with consistency, and each time we drink it we love it just a little more. This is not a good whiskey for new drinkers though.
