I'm not really a Bourbon afficianado, but several people have told me I should try to find a rare, small batch, distillation called Pappy Van Winkle's 23 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. Has anyone seen this on a NOLA drinks menu? I've heard that Restaurant August (where we have a reservation) might have it, but that it might be $80 to $120 per shot (so we'd probably only be able to afford to look at the bottle-unless they sell a thimble-sized taste.) An older online article said Avenue Pub, Bourbon House, The Delachaise, and Dos Jefes Uptown Cigar Bar might also have it when it's avaialble.
My husband has been on a business trip to coastal Alabama this week. His boss wanted him to try Tuaca, but it was sold out in all the bars and restaurants they went to. Anyone know where we could get a drink with it in New Orleans?
We arrive there this coming Sunday afternoon with our 26 year old daughter for an epic pig-out and drinking binge. I will be posting our "final" itinerary later today and would appreciate your opinions!
Thanks in advance!
