    Evolution of Bourbon Tasting with Bernie Lubbers

    Anybody been to one? I see a few references to Bernie Lubbers on SB.com, at least one mentioning his book which I haven't read, but nothing about a tasting with him. Is he a member here?

    He will be in Atlanta later this month and I was thinking about attending the tasting. His website notes he is an ambassador for Heaven Hill and describes him as "the Whiskey Professor".

    For $10 it seems like it might be worth checking out!

    Bernie used to part of the Beam team. I guess HH had deeper marketing pockets.

    I've met the guy. Very passionate and knowledgeable. For 10 bucks, what's to lose especially if there is a pour or two in it.

    Re: Evolution of Bourbon Tasting with Bernie Lubbers

    Sounds like a bargain to me. You'll likely get to taste a few pours from the Heaven Hill range, listen to some of Bernie's stories and maybe learn a few things. I can't see a down side here except maybe the cost of a cab ride home if you have a few....

    Looks like $65 for dinner and bourbon.

    I drove an hour and half for his presentation. Well worth it. He's a great presenter and it's fascinating to taste the changes in bourbon over time.

    I've seen him do his thing a couple times with Beam (although did bump into him at HH's BHC during the KBF sporting an Evan Williams polo). Entertaining guy, and I liked his book (educational and funny). For $10 and a couple tastes, I'm signed up!
