I signed up for the Academy on June 25. Since I have already paid my money it is too late to benefit from asking the questions but I will ask anyway. Has anyone attended in the past and if so, what did you think of it?

Hi James,
Welcome to the forum.
You didn't waste your money, I thought it was excellent.
Let us know what you think.

I attended 2 years ago. You haven't wasted your money. Chris does a great job and the tour is supportive of the "classroom" work. I intend to return.

I had a great time today at the academy. Chris Morris (Master Distiller) and Micheal Veach (Filson Club Historian) gave excellant lectures. Chris ran a Bourbon 101 class and a Styles of Bourbon tasting. He also gave a behind the scenes tour of the distillery. Mike gave a hour long history of bourbon and the industry. It was well researched and informative. I can not speak highly enough of the academy (obviously)! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif
