Tasting #9 Recap: Kentucky Bourbon & Rye


The Saratoga Whisk(e)y Club had Tasting #9 on two nights, June 14 and June 28, 2017. The focus of the evening was Bourbon and Rye bottles that were recently brought back from Kentucky from the 9 Maple Bourbon Tour. We had a very large turnout of 36 people, both members and non-members. We had five different whiskies at our tasting, four bourbons and one rye.  Here is a list of what we tasted:

  • We started with a Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout from Alltech Brewing
  • Old Bardstown Bourbon Bottled in Bond
  • Maker’s Mark Private Select Bourbon – Bill Samuels, Jr. Edition
  • Old Fitzgerald 12 Year Old Bourbon
  • Wild Turkey Master’s Keep ‘Decades’
  • Angel’s Envy Rye

Overall it was a fantastic tasting with lots of special whiskies!  It is always great bringing back bottles that are not available locally.
