We are kicking off the weekend early with our Whiskey Wednesday, featuring high proof bourbons! Come see us from 5-8PM for bourbon flights for $20!

Old Forester 1920 Prohibition 115 proof
“Old Forester 1920 Prohibition has a nose of intense medley of cherry preserves, drippy caramel, dark chocolate, thickened maple syrup and seasoned oak spiciness. You’ll taste a dark caramel coats layers of malt nuttiness and sweet graham cracker all warmed by green peppercorn and coriander spice brightened with a hint of cedar. It will finish with a tart apple crispness giving way to a long smoky finish full of toasted marshmallow, chocolate and graham cracker sweetness.” – Old Forester Bourbon

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof 116.8 proof
“The true, bold spirit of Wild Turkey has been captured in this authentic barrel proof whiskey, creating one of the finest bourbons in the world. Uncut with water, Rare Breed is an uncompromised Kentucky bourbon with tones of sweet tobacco and hints of orange and mint, making it a remarkably smooth whiskey legend.” – Wild Turkey Distillery

Maker’s Mark Cask Strength 111.6 proof
“From the barrel to the bottle at 108 to 114 proof, Maker’s Mark® Cask Strength retains the signature front-of-the-palate flavors of Maker’s Mark® – while amping up the oak, caramel, vanilla and spice to create a remarkable new bourbon.” – Makers Mark Bourbon

Bakers 7yr 107 proof
“Burnt brown sugar, toasted marcona almonds, and hints of crème fraîche surface on the alluring nose here. The palate is firm but not overwhelming, with a potpourri of dried stone fruits, spices and a hint of molasses. The above-average finish shows a bit of heat and lots of spice. Baker’s® Bourbon is tasty served neat, but works even better on the rocks.” – Baker’s Bourbon
