    I am at the most amazing bourbon bar in Lexington right now

    Bluegrass Tavern. They have... Everything. Even the Old Rip 23 single barrel.... The bartender knows more than I could ever dream of knowing. Currently sipping a Pappy 15 and have had multiple free samples and cocktail tastings. I'm blown away. This night changed whole my whole world on bourbon. We are about to change our hotel reservations from Louisville so we can stay on Lexington another night lol

    you can't really see the awesomeness from this picture. they had jefferson 17 (from WT!!), Old Rip 23 (single barrel PVW), a 1955 Beam Select, George T Stagg, Handy Rye, Rittenhouse Rye, all the PVW, Old Rip and pretty much anything else you could possibly imagine...

    Re: I am at the most amazing bourbon bar in Lexington right now

    We had a very lucky day... after visiting The Thoroughbred Shop (thanks to a SB recommendation) and another random liquor store we acquired a Four Roses 2009 Marriage, 2010 Four Roses 100th Anniversary Barrel Strength, Old Rip 90*, Elmer T. Lee, Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 Rye, Van Winkle 12 Lot "B" ...

    Earlier while visiting the Maker's Mark distillery I came across a magazine called The Bourbon review. The latest issue had an ad for The Bluegrass Tavern on the 2 page. It claimed that they had more bourbon than any other bar in Lexington... and I wouldn't be surprised if they had more than any bar in Louisville either!

    I'm in the process of cracking open the Four Roses 100th

    The manager at Bluegrass Tavern, Chris Evans, is a master of bourbon and will, albeit subjectively, bestow you with incredible advice and education. I highly recommend this bar if you're ever in downtown Lexington

    Sneak around the corner to the bar at Metropol.

    Not slick, well stocked or roomy, but another fine selection at reasonable prices.
