ChowEvent: Last Call for Bourbon Tasting

Aaron D | Feb 4, 200412:22 AM

Where: Delilah’s, 2771 N. Lincoln Avenue
When: Wednesday, February 11, 2004, 6:00 p.m.
What: Bourbon tasting
Cost: $30

These are the final details. My apologies to those of you for whom February 11 was a difficult date. I didn’t have as much room for flexibility as I’d hoped, and this date worked for most of those who responded. If anyone else is interested in joining, there’s still plenty of room. Those who have already replied, please re-confirm. I’d like to have an accurate head count by next Monday.

After talking with Mike at Delilah’s today, I’m really excited about this event, and I think he is as well. He’s a very knowledgeable fellow with a particular interest in bourbon and its history. He has picked out a great list of bourbons with an eye toward representing emphasis on different grains in the bourbons and different families of bourbon recipes and distilleries. There will be twelve whiskies, including a rye whiskey and a corn whiskey, I believe. Selections are also, for the most part, things you can actually buy at a liquor store, with a mix of some well-tested brands and some more obscure offerings. Mike is currently writing an article on recent innovations in bourbon production and said he plans to discuss these themes during the course of the tasting.

I’ll send out an email next week to those who will be attending.



(Not sure if I need to point this out or not, but this event is not sponsored by It is, however, a great opportunity for posters here to meet up, hang out, and drink and learn about bourbon.)
