11.09.18 | All Bourbon Is Whiskey But Not All Whiskey Is Bourbon
The first of many bourbon tastings is upon us. We start off with the basics (by Nathalie’s standards). We aren’t talking Jim Beam, but we will be heavily influenced by Booker Noe, the grandson of Jim Beam. Booker undoubtedly was a major contributor to the elevation of bourbon, if not one of its most influential patrons. For those of you who are apprehensive to sip a glass of bourbon, now is your chance to do so and to explore all of the lovely characteristics that will unfold on your palate. Basil Hayden and Knob Creek, plus a nod to Elijah Craig, one of the somm’s favorite underappreciated bourbons, will be poured and indulged.
In the immortal words of Booker Noe, “Drink it any damn way you want.”
