Other than beer, I do enjoy American Bourbon. Sam Snead’s House of Whiskey held a Single Barrel Bourbon tasting on Wednesday 19th Feb.
I had a privilege of being able to share with 40 of their guests some of the new Epic Carolina, Amber Ale.
It was a fun evening and I thank all those that attended for being patient with me, as I tried to learn more about Bourbon. Even if Mr Kelly was obsessed with “barometric pressure” 😉

Very cool slide about how much bourbon is lost over time
The bottles we tasted (not the best pic I’ve ever taken)
Enough with the “barometric pressure” already
A few more pictures from the evenings tasting.
