Joey Barbour, proprietor of The Blind Barbour will lead up to 22 TCREW members through the process of Bourbon Tasting! To comply with current COVID restrictions, there will be two separate thirty-minute tastings of four different bourbons with one-half of the group inside tasting while the other half outside networking. After the first tasting, each half will switch. Following the tastings, there will be one-hour of networking for the entire group.
During each tasting, Joey will share the proper techniques for bourbon tasting with our TCREW members and show us how to compare the clarity, nose (or aromas), taste, and finish of a selection of bourbons. During a blind tasting, we will try all four samples. Joey will talk about the flavors of each bourbon and then he will reveal the brand and type of each bourbon tasted. Once revealed, Joey Barbour will share the important details in the making of each bourbon. Details will include information about each bourbon’s distillery, the bourbon’s aging process, the type of grain used, and more fun facts that make a difference in the taste of each bourbon. We’ll end the tasting sessions with an open Q&A.
