Bourbon aficionados are well aware that every year Bardstown Kentucky holds a week long celebration of Bourbon in their city, bringing all kinds of food, musical acts, cigars, jazz, and off course bourbon for tasting, dinner, and other events.

Whiskey Wednesday Bourbons - Willet Pot Still Bib & Tucker Elijah Craig Small Batch 1792 Single Barrel

Now that the Bourbon Festival is over, we thought we’d feature some of the bourbons that were there for our patrons to enjoy. From 5-8 come enjoy .5 ounce pours for $20! For you wine people, we’ll waive the restaurant fee on bottles of wine enjoyed in our store and buy one get one half off glasses of wine!

Willet Pot Still
“Nose is “vanilla lemon cake.” The palate is a balance of caramel, vanilla, spices and citrus. I’m not sure if they made the opulent bottle to match the Whiskey or vice versa.” – Willet Bourbon

Bib & Tucker
“Aroma of vanilla, freshly mowed grass and leather-bound books. Notes of sweet fruit, vanilla beans, caramel, dried apricots dominate the palate, and are complemented by a subtle touch of ginger spice. Finish is complex and lingers, with hints of chestnuts and roasted corn.” – Caskers

Elijah Craig Small Batch
“Long before the term Small Batch even existed, our Master Distillers were hand-selecting just the right number of barrels to make Elijah Craig. This expertise and attention to detail give Elijah Craig Small Batch the right balance of rich flavor and full body. Each small batch carries a signature warm spice and subtle smoke flavor. A combination that belongs in any Bourbon fan’s regular rotation.” – Elijah Craig Bourbon

1792 Single Barrel
“In order to create this unique bourbon, the finest barrels are selected and tasted from the best aging warehouses.  Only those barrels deemed “exceptional” are then bottled individually, one by one. This preserves the distinct character of each barrel.” – 1792 Bourbon
