This Friday at noon, I am giving a talk about the history of certain bourbon brands. It is a free lecture open to the public, so if you are in Louisville on Friday, please do come by for the talk. The talk will cover the history of specific brands, but also the evolution of the way bourbon is branded from the early 19th century to the 21st century.
I also want to say that I am also using this site to get images of the brands I am talking about. I will credit the site in general and Mark and Chris in particular since most of the bottle images are their images. What I am suprised about is the number of brands that do not have images with the reviews. Some of these really do suprise me because I could have swore that I have seen images of the brands here, but they do not appear to be there now. These brands are Old Taylor, Old Grand Dad, Old Fitzgerald, Early times, Yellowstone and Ezra Brooks. If anybody has the images of these brands and can post them to the site, I would be happy to add them to my presentation as well, with credit given to the provider.
