This whiskey is no gentleman.
Kevin
 

N: Something went wrong. Stale bread, cardboard, rotten vegetables. It just smells old. 

P: Ouch. Smelling stale bread and cardboard is one thing, but don't put it in my mouth. It's hot on top of that. Adding water just makes it all go flat and....no. 

F: Ok, please stop.

 

You're right Adam, this one didn't even have the common courtesy to hold the door open for me.  

Chris
 

N: Hmm. Very odd...bad.
P: Horribly woody and rotten.

F: Bad. Nasty. Wood.
