Baker’s 7y Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey with Dan & Ryan

Dan – pleasant pickle, warm corn, musky, creme brule
Simon – sugar maple, sweet, warm, char

Dan – huge burn, chem trail down throat
Simon – strange mouthfeel, syrupy, medicinal
Ryan – woody but soggy, burns throat, heats chest

splash
Dan – spicy, corn, mild aftertaste, old dock
