I’m doing a little pre-gaming and getting ready to record this week’s Episode tonight.

Any guesses on who our guest is?

Hint - The bottle should give it away.

Side bar - Did you see @fredminnick ‘s video this week on this expression? If not, you need to check it out and buy yourself a bottle before it’s all gone. Forever.

HEY NASHVILLE AREA FRIENDS!

Pretty excited to be at The Distillers’ Roundtable at @watchhillproper in Louisville with Mrs. Bourbon Life this evening.

Not only is it our first time here but we’re going get to hear some great stories from Bill Samuels. Jr. from @makersmark, @chodriscoll from @heavenhilldistillery, @kzrabbithole from @rabbithole, @chrismorris852 and @elizabeth_oneill_mccall from @woodfordreserve, and @caleb_kilburn from @kentuckypeerless.

We’re also enjoying some great pours from each distillery as well as some great food from Watch Hill Proper.

And we’re all raising money for The O’Neill Foundation at the same time so it’s a great night.

*** NEW EPISODE ALERT ***

In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast presented by the @3fortylex, The Bourbon Life Crew celebrates “Friendsgiving” together while drinking some great pours, having some great conversation, and enjoying some amazing food prepared by our super talented co-host, Matt.

The Crew talks about the appearance of @wellerbourbon 12 in the recent Season Opener of @yellowstone and what impact that could have for @buffalotracedistillery and fans of the Distillery, the news out of Danville last week about @campariusa acquiring a 70% stake in @wildernesstraildistillery for $420 million and what that might mean for the Distillery and its faithful fans, and the crazy price increases for sourced whiskey in the industry over the past couple of years and what that might mean for non-distilling producers and others who rely on those barrels to create their expressions.

They also taste and review several different pours including the newly released @olddominick Bottled in Bond Tennessee Whiskey, @spiritsoffrenchlick Solomon Scott Bottled in Bond Rye, and a @rarecharacterwhiskey Amburana Cask Finished Rye.

This Episode was a lot of fun for the Crew to record. Not to mention that the food was just absolutely amazing.

If you'd like any of Matt's recipes feel free to email or DM.

Sometimes life just works out in funny ways.

I drove Mrs. Bourbon Life to Louisville this evening for a work event she had and I decided to kill some time at @merleswhiskeykitchen.

While I was there, I ended up running into @bernielubbers who graciously purchased a pour of Merle’s @elijahcraig Private Barrel Barrel Proof pick for me.

And then, after a little effort, the bartender agreed to sell me a bottle of their pick.

Let me just say - this might be the best ECBP Private Pick I’ve ever had.

“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.
