Black Bush is a very nice whiskey.

We have been on the bourbon tour, to Makers Mark, Woodford Reserve, and Jack Daniels...there are others. We also had a whiskey/bourbon tasting once. Hubby likes JD and I like Makers Mark. For every day, we drink Kentucky Gentleman, and its fine in Manhattans.

Do you mean the "Bourbon Trail?" Jack Daniels is not a part of that. Different state.

That's why I will never go there.

What nonsense.

I've been to all of the Kentucky distilleries, and will continue to go back.

No biggie. I'm getting Kentucky Bourbon that blows the Jack Daniels products out of the water.

It's a bit disappointing. Still, it's a nice tour. Although, unless you're a big Jack fan I think the tours in Kentucky are a better bet. Especially since you can sample them. Not to mention that Jack Daniel's distillery is pretty out of the way. On the flip side, Bardstown Kentucky is a beautiful little town even if you weren't visiting any of the surrounding distilleries.

Did you get your free bourbon trail tshirt?

I enjoyed Makers Mark. If I were to imagine the most idyllic distillery it would probably be Makers. I guess the distillery it's made in is the oldest in the USA (even though Makers Mark is fairly new).

I remember sampling the wort directly from the wash tubs which the tour guide suggested we do. I guess you don't have to worry much about contamination at that stage of fermentation. It tasted like yeasty malt... not particularly nice but still interesting.
