I am back from a road trip to Kentucky. Jay's 60th birthday was Friday and I went for that, and took advantage of being there to "stock-up." It is not as bad as it looks, this will last a year. There are half a dozen good single barrel Bourbons, three specialty liqueurs, two bottles of vodka and a bottle of moonshine. Three of these are only available at the distillery, the moonshine, the bourbon cream and the Wheatley vodka. There are two bottles of Wathens Bourbon, I think it is one of the hidden gems of the single barrel world. Since I moved to DC, Kentucky has changed he law and distilleries can now serve small samples and sell onsite. This seems to have greatly expanded the world of bourbon tourism. I will ramble on about the three distillery tours over the next few days. None of the bourbons on the table came from any of the distilleries I visited. The products of one are very widely distribute and there is no reason to haul them home, the other I have on hand. The third one is a few months from releasing their first bourbon. Good bourbon takes time, and can't be rushed.
Suuuuuuure it will take you a year to polish these off.ReplyDelete
Moonshine, heard of it but do not know what it is. Looks like gin, is it?ReplyDelete
