My favorites from that night:
- Woodford Reserve - Butterscotch Lifesaver aroma. Bright and lively.
- Elijah Craig - Smooth, velvety mouthfeel with a sweet, toffee-like finish.
- Pappy Van Winkle - Funky, dried fruit; overripe banana aromas with a sweet, tobacco finish. Plus, how could you not love something called "Pappy Van Winkle"?
- A.H. Hirsch Reserve - Mmm. Buttery. The empty class smelled like chocolate mint. Good luck getting your hands on some of this, as the distillery closed in 1988.
