Whiskey Club - Baker's Kentucky Bourbon

It's been quite a while, but I am still here. Played a wee bit of poker tonight and even tried some bourbon of note.

I think the picture on the right sums up a pretty fun evening. I posted the review of the whiskey over at our whiskey club's blog, I'll repost it here for your enjoyment.

Having a few glasses of 107 proof bourbon means never having to say your sorry? Right? or um, after the bourbon and a few nummy bottles of Yuengling knowing much of anything, right?

Night, night :)

Boys, the poker points have been updated. Next month, we will have a winner...provided DeeBakes, British Tony and myself show up. Any one of us could easily make it. 16 points is all Tony needs and since I made up for missing a month due to a faulty spinal column, it's anyone's game. Check out the points...

This month we sampled the Baker's Kentucky Bourbon. Aged only 7 years and coming in at 107 proof, all things were destined for a short trip through crazy town.

I'd tell you what an awesome night I had playing poker. Ya. Good times. Unlike last month, I rarely saw a hand and when I did, I couldn't hold on to a dominating lead. When 99 < 77, you know you run not so good. PokerFool made an appearance...he schooled us in the finer points of poker. 30 points in a single night. Crazy.

So, how was the Baker's? I'll be perfectly honest. It was $40 with tax and really quite good. When I pulled the cork, we immediately noticed the fruity aroma. Not sickeningly sweet, but very nice. 107 proof it said on the label but going down, it was very smooth. Much smoother than whiskeys far less strong. I think pretty much everyone was happy with this one. An excellent bourbon at a very reasonable price.

All in all, it was an fun night. Hope you all have a great weekend!
