And you could make the same argument about whiskey and whisky. It's all "whisky/whiskey" family just a matter of where you live you call it what you want. I get where your coming from on "it's bourbon" I understand heritage and tradition coming from TN and working in that industry. But anyway....bring on the BOURBON!

PS- I would be all for Makers Mark, but since the still house is down for maintaince I don't think I care to now.

I'd lay low for a while, you're making yourself an awfully good target for shooting practice...

I'm am so looking forward to a few good drinks. While I generally favor Irish or Canadian whiskeys, my absolute fav is Elmer T. Lee's single barrel reserve. Got to remember to pick up a good sample of Kentucky's finest while I'm there. I've always been meaning to get some Woodford Reserve. Ok, I'm going downstairs now. This made me thirsty.

Hands down best tour and scenery is Woodford Reserve (and its the closest to the fest). Brown Forman dropped millions they will never get back since it is too small of a distillery just to make this THE ideal way to show people how bourbon was made back in the day. I have been to every distillery in the state and this is the best.... $5 gets you a tour (takes right under 1 hour), a shot (a few good sips) and dark chocolate bourbon ball candy.

Woodford Reserve sounds like a nice tour, Sundays they have 1,2, & 3pm tours.

Woodford Reserve is the one we will be going to it looks. Although we will be going Saturday while the dyno and all is going on. Then hitting the comedy club that night too.

Should we contact Woodford reserve and set up a time so we don't overwhelm them?

I'd love to do the "Corn to Cork" tour but that appears to be Tues-Wed-Thur only.
