In life it always pays to be selective. This is indeed true for love and for bourbon. What could be better than combining the two? With this in mind, a recent blog post on the Garden and Gun website about a wedding in Hilton Head, South Carolina has given me the perfect idea for our wedding: a bourbon tasting bar. As a few of you may know I am a huge bourbon snob and my personal favorite is a premium small batch of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey Labrot & Graham's Woodford Reserve. Part of being a bourbon snob is the understanding that there is only one way to drink bourbon: neat and at room temperature. Neat meaning no mixers, no juices, no fruit wedges, nothing but that delicious nectar that only comes from the Kentucky hills. Additionally, you should never put ice or chill bourbon. It's like talking back to your grandma, you just don't do it. On this note here are three of the six bourbons that I know will be apart of our bourbon tasting bar. We will be selecting the other three after thorough research.
1) Labrot & Graham's Woodford Reserve2) Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve
3) Basil Hayden's Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey
