On February 28, Louisville is having its own bourbon sampler to benefit retired racehorses. If that sounds like an only-in-Kentucky event, it is. It's at the historic Seelbach Hilton Hotel.
Pouring will be Harlen Wheatley of Buffalo Trace; Jim Rutledge of Four Roses; Parker and Craig Beam of Heaven Hill; Fred Noe of Jim Beam; Kevin Smith of Maker’s Mark; Jimmy Russell of Wild Turkey; and Chris Morris of Woodford Reserve.
The tasting is followed by dinner, followed by dessert and dancing, and if you're staying the night, an after-party in the Old Seelbach Bar.
