I have been on many other bourbon tasting experience tours and previously at Buffalo Trace, I am never disappointed when I turn onto Great Buffalo Trace for a visit. Most recently I took the Hard Hat Tour and found it to be one of my favorites. The tour guide, David, was exceptional. His knowledge, energy, and engagement of the group in the experience of bourbon making made it truly experiential. From having us handle the corn kernels, to then handling the ground corn meal, to tasting from the fermentation vats to get an idea of the various tastes of sweet to sour through the process, to putting 150 proof in our hands to rub together to smell first the alcohol then the grains, and lastly the bread-like scent was so interesting. As always, Buffalo Trace invites you 'to their home' and provides the tour and sampling free of charge. If you haven't experienced the tour (or if it has been awhile), be sure to add it to your places to visit. You won't be disappointed.
