When your family hails from the hills of Kentucky, one might think a love for bourbon would be genetic…and it just might be. While my passion is wine, bourbon was my first love and it can’t be replaced. High-end bourbon now sits in its rightful place along side single-malt scotch. I came across an excellent article by Benjamin Cheever on the Food and Wine website and it reminded me of my first ventures into drinking the “good stuff.” I wanted to share it with you. Read it, then go out to your favorite bar and have a shot of Makers Mark or Bookers.
Now if I can just get more people to try the barrel aged sipping rums.
