[BOURBON TASTING] – Sam Snead’s House of Whiskey

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” ;-)
