    Re: World Whisky Awards

    It's good and motivating for me to be able to find at least two "highly commended" bourbons (JBB and Bulleit) here in Turkey.

    Re: World Whisky Awards

    Very interesting. I guess I oughta invest in another bottle of Bakers again. I've bought it twice in the past, and thought it too harsh to be enjoyable. Maybe the third time'll be the charm, to turn this toad into a prince.

    Very interesting. Thanks. I have a Baker's sampler that I will have to try. Looking forward to it.

    Chuck,

    1. After the tasting, did they let you know what your own personal results were?

    2. How in the world did you manage to keep your palate alive tasting 43 different whiskeys!?!

    1. Yes, but I haven't processed them yet.

    2. I had several weeks to do it.

    Re: World Whisky Awards

    Chuck, I'm glad you posted this. Lit a fire for me to go try Bakers again.... It had been quite some time and my faded memories weren't all that positive. So I picked up a bottle and cracked it yesterday. It took a while to settle in on me but it was actually quite good. I wouldn't rank it #1 (or even in my top 5) but if Bakers was the only Bourbon I could buy, I'd be pretty happy. It was complex and full bodied and sweet. Very mild for 107 proof. I may have to start including it in my "regular pours".

    Thanks!!

    Ken

    I also was inspired to pick up a bottle of Baker's -- my first.

    I'm impressed. I found it deeper and richer than its siblings, with lots of chocolate on the palate. Delicious.

    Thanks for the push!

    More so that KC? I'm right in thinking they are the same company right? I'm going to have to jump out and grab some Bakers. Those sound like just the right tastes for my palate.
