Great experience from start to finish. Our guide not only had great knowledge of the intricacies of Bourbon making but also of the beautiful Kentucky countryside in Lexington horse country.

Bruce was great, personable and knowledgeable. We also likes Darryl who was last year's driver/guide. We did Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve and Wild Turkey and they were all good although Buffalo Trace is my favorite.
