KY Bourbon Affair: The Bourbon Premiere

The Inaugural KY Bourbon Affair officially kicked off tonight with an event called, The Bourbon Premiere, held at Louisville’s 21C hotel. With more than 130 bourbon available for tasting, popular whiskey writer (and friend) Fred Minnick and myself decided to take up the challenge of trying as many as we could. Factor in 20 or so different bourbon cocktail options and it’s easy to figure out we didn’t get very far in our quest. One of the great things about this event was the fact that many attendees were from outside of Kentucky and were able to spend time with many of the bourbon legends that we get to mingle with on a frequent basis including, Fred Noe, Jimmy Russell, Chris Morris, and more. This was a great kickoff to what looks like a great overall event.
