Arrived yesterday afternoon for the annual pilgrimage to bourbon mecca. The kick off theme for this year is "Only damn good bourbon." And good bourbon was on the table for sure. I brought along to share with the group a single barrel non chill filtered 9 year Old Weller Antique along with a Julios Rock Hill Farms from 2010.
The group just finished up a barrel tasting at Four Roses at Cox Creek. They rolled out 10 barrels and unfortunately, almost all of them were very good. Headed up to Lawrenceburg to the distillery for a group lunch with Jim Rutledge, Four Roses Master Distiller.
So far, a great start. Tomorrow, we'll be at Buffalo Trace.
