    Bourbon 101

    Jim Rutledge of Four Roses is teaching a four session bourbon continuing education course at the University of Louisville Shelby campus:

    http://www.delphi.louisville.edu/con...n.html#bourbon

    I'm tempted, but, honestly, between this site and all the events I've been to where Rutledge has spoken I figure I've already heard a lot of it.

    The Shelby campus is at Hurstbourne and Shelbyville, so you'll be just a few miles north of that Liquor Barn.

    I just received this notice in an e-mail as well. I have never had the pleasure of meeting Jim Rutledge. I might just sign up for this, should be fun!

    I wonder if they will offer an online course for Bourbon lovers outside the area? They could film it, charge the same amount and reach a larger audience.

    Or, for about $26, they could just buy my book.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    They tend to charge more for grad-level classes...
