I have a question for all you west coasters out there. I live in Kentucky and am heading to a bachelor party in Lake Tahoe this summer. The groom to be lives in Seattle, and most of the other attendees are from Portland/California/New Mexico. (Only one other person from East of the Mississippi, in fact.)
As a treat, I wanted to take a bottle of bourbon that is available in Kentucky that might not be readily available on the West Coast. Any suggestions?
The gentleman at my local liquor store recommended Wathen's Single Barrel or Four Roses Single Barrel, with Wathen's being the less distributed of the two.
Anyhow, I figured I'd ask some people who live there if they have suggestions. (I'd love to take the Willett's, but I fear packing that in a suitcase and checking it in baggage. The bottle appears so fragile.)
