A tour conducted by Julian "that is not covered in the normal trace tour" and all the Van Winkle stuff for sale, but alas No bourbon for sale...DAMN Wonder if he would sign my bottle of 15 lol

    Well Last night was the dinner, and man it was really good food, LOTS of GREAT bourbon, Not real sure what I expected but Preston and Julian were very down to earth and approachable. Actually came to our table and made sure we didn't need anything (got there early) stood and talked and had cocktails then mingled off as more people showed up.....

    Oh, and of course Rule #1 of a premium bourbon event (when you have 2 tickets)......Bring someone that don't like bourbon, lol doubles. Even though my dad don't like bourbon, he still tried the 12, 20, and 23. But I got the lions share of it. Now that I have tried the different Pappy, I can say (to me) 15 is the best, 20 is real close, like a 15 without any bite. Sadly 23 was almost a let down, I think it may be over oaked for me. .....But always a fine bourbon.
