Get a couple of tastings of some incredible bourbons while you're there at their tasting bar

We'll that's a pretty resounding theme lol.
Fuck, now you guys got me all hot and bothered. Guess I'll make sure to bring a personal credit card this trip, can't expense these upcoming purchases!!!

I was also given a recommendation to visit the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar while in town. Anyone local want to meet up in the evening for a pour?

I really wish my flight arrived with time to swing down to 4R before they close for the day.

Been drinking bourbon with lemon and grenadine lately. Love four roses

Speaking of 4R, what other Lexington/I-75 distilleries are worth visiting? (Buffalo Trace, Wild Turkey, Woodford, Hartfield, Town Branch are all possibilities)
post #2674 of 2831

Maybe give Buffalo Trace a visit? I've had 2 glasses of Buffalo Trace and it wasn't bad with just some ice. Hartfield however, was a little disappointing.

I've been to Buffalo Trace. It's a great visit if you have the time.

Yeah, the Buffalo Trace plant is fun to visit. Big operation. Their regular, free tour takes you around some of the rickhouses, goes into the history of the distillery, and does a tasting. You get your choice of two tastes out of four or five options, including BT, their white dog, BT Cream, and a couple others. It's free and you don't have to register. If you want to see the production side, you have to reserve a spot in their "hard hat" tour in advance.

Woodford is an absolutely gorgeous place. It's like the Disney of bourbon - impeccably manicured, smoothly produced presentation, etc. Tour costs $10 IIRC but you get to see the whole process, end to end, and taste a couple shots at the end (standard Woodford and Double Oaked).

Everything lined up for me this afternoon and, with some...ahem...minor disregard to the posted speed limit, I was able to make it to the 3pm tour at Four Roses. It was neat to see and since I was in the area definitely worth the trip. The Private Selections in the gift shop were a bit pricey so I skipped any souvenirs but I did get the nice tasting glass!

Nice! Getting stoked on my trip now.

Any of you guys ever toy with the idea of a weekend on the Bourbon Trail? Given enough notice, it'd be cool to try to arrange a meet-up around this, and I'd be down if any of ya'll have ever toyed with the idea.. I'd even volunteer to manage the logistics..

My girlfriend has wanted to do it. I live in Columbus but will be living in SE KY/NE TN for two years for med school starting in the fall and she was looking at things we could do halfway between. She doesn't really like bourbon but I do.

ETSU? When you move, drop me a line. We have a cabin in Gatlinburg, TN which is not far from where you will be..

Yeah buddy..

Seriously, I think it would be a cool thing to do period, but maybe even slightly more fun sharing the experience with others that also have, uh, other shared interests and obsessions, lol

That would be an awesome trip. What time of the year would be the best in terms of weather and other events or considerations?
