Awesome! That is one lovable man right there. And I notice that you were in the same bottling room, where Blanton's and Eagle Rare are bottled. We spoke briefly and I explained how I had moved back to KY after being gone for 15 years and that I was very happy to be home, enjoying every minute of it. His response, "I wouldn't wanna be anywhere else", was a passionate statement. He had a big smile on his face. It's hard not to go home and buy a bottle of bourbon from there trying to relive the warmth and friendliness. Thanks for posting that pic.
