Y’all know that @elijahcraig Barrel Proof is my favorite Bourbon and I absolutely love these Private Barrel picks like this one from @liquor_barn_ky that I picked up a couple of months ago.

I’m a big fan of the picks that @bradfrdwilliams does for Liquor Barn so I have no doubt that this one will be another winner.

And this comes from Deatsville (iykyk) and is 124.7 Proof and 8 years old.

I can’t wait to crack this one open and give it a try.

We had a great time last weekend at @nelsonsgreenbrier Distillery & Restaurant.

If you’ve not been, you definitely need to check them out.

Everything - the atmosphere, the space, the food, the service (thank you @stensky), and the drinks exceeded our expectations and then some.

We collectively rated it a 9.5 out of 10!!!

Thank you, NGBD, for the invitation, the amazing brunch, and great tour!

And thank you to my 3 beautiful models and brunchmates, Mrs. Bourbon Life, @whitneylauren2, and @halljar.

I can’t say enough about how awesome last night’s @bourboncrusade fundraiser for @heartkentucky at @icehouselouisville was.

It was an event to also honor former Master Distiller of @woodfordreserve, Chris Morris, as well as the new Master Distiller at Woodford, @elizabeth_oneill_mccall.

And although I wasn’t part of the consortiums that purchased a @willettdistillery Barrel for $180,000, or 2 @oldforester President’s Choice Barrels for $500,000, I did manage to snag this 2016-05 Batch of Booker’s and this bottle of 12-year old Barrel Proof The Ambassador.

It was such a great event. An absolutely incredible night with a lot of great people and amazing pours.

Thank you, @ashleyheather82, for the invite!

“Too much of anything is bad but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”– Mark Twain, Author

It’s fitting that one of the greatest storytellers in American History had this to say about whiskey many years ago.

And as an author who wrote about life on the Mississippi River we have to believe that Mr. Twain was writing these words specifically about American’s only native spirit, Bourbon, a spirit that he surely enjoyed as it passed down that mighty river regularly heading for New Orleans and the rest of the world.

Bourbon is all about two things: (1) the people (those who make it and those who drink it), and (2) good stories. There is nothing better than sitting around with friends, both old and new, sharing a delicious glass of Bourbon and telling great stories.

At The Bourbon Life our mission is simple – to share our passion for all things Bourbon with you.

May your glasses always be full and may you keep on living The Bourbon Life.

I was SO excited to get my recent Barreled & Boxed shipment from James B. Beam Distilling Co. which had 200 ml bottles of each of the three Hardins Creek releases from this year and this Distiller’s Share Batch 4 375ml which is a blend of all 3 of those releases. 

I opened it earlier this week when we were recording with Chad from Rare Character for this week’s Podcast Episode and can I just say that it is absolutely amazing??

All of the great things from each individual batch are highlighted in this incredible and delicious blend. 

Freddie really knocked it out of the park with this one. 

Let’s face it, with 17 year old Beam at 110 Proof how could you not love it? 

If Beam decided to release this blend as a 750ml, I’d stand in line for a couple of days to buy it. 

It’s that good. 

Have you tried this Batch 4 yet?Image attachment
