It is a bourbon-heavy show this week but we are guessing our listeners will be ok with that. After a weekend wrap-up Ginny and Charlie sit down with Molly Wellmann at the Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar to talk about the bar, her new cocktail book, and of course, bourbon. After that we have a review of the bourbon Molly recommended and a song by a stand out new group, Typhoon. Trust us, they will blow you away.
Run Time: 1 hour, 2 Minutes, 38 Seconds
Elmer T. Lee Bourbon
(From the official website buffalotracedistillery.com)
Named after Master Distiller Emeritus Elmer T. Lee, this whiskey is hand selected and bottled to the taste and standards of Elmer T. Lee himself. Perfectly balanced and rich, as declared by the man who knows how great bourbon should taste. TASTING NOTES: The nose brings notes of clover, vanilla, and old leather. The flavor balances fruit, honey and vanilla with a light spiciness. A long and warm finish.
