Tasting #35 Recap: Kentucky Finds!


On Wednesday, June 19th, the Saratoga Whiskey Club had a special tasting that focused on bottles recently brought back from Kentucky in May during the Rascal + Thorn Bourbon Trail Tour. The goal was to taste whiskies that are not available in the Upstate NY market. It was a packed house and there were 26 members in attendance.

Here is a list of the whiskies we tasted:

  • Four Roses Small Batch Select
  • Toddy’s Limestone Branch 100% Malted Rye
  • Peerless 3 Year Single Barrel Rye “Orange Blossom”
  • Michter’s Fort Nelson Reserve Rye – Hand Fill for the Club
  • Justin’s House of Bourbon’s Pinhook Bourbon Barrel
  • William Heavenhill 12 Year Bourbon

It was a fantastic evening of Bourbon and Rye. Everyone enjoyed this special treat. Cheers!
