What was your first experience with bourbon?

My first experience was probably tasting my dad's Wild Turkey (which I actually like now for a shot), my turn on experience was when I visited the Jim Beam Distillery a couple of years ago.

What is your favorite bourbon?

Hmmm, such a hard question. I think different times call for different bourbons...sometimes I like it smooth and soft like Basil Hayden's and sometimes I like it hard to find like Pappy Van Winkle and sometimes I like a good value like Weller 12...mostly my favorite bourbon is one that I am enjoying.


I am the head whiskey babe at Whiskey Sister! I started an educational/apprecia­tion group for women and whiskey. I love learning about and tasting bourbon. I blog about my whiskey adventures at Chicago Now, Women of Whiskey Chicago.
