Balconies Distillery - Texas Whiskey

An episode from the past. Definitely opens the mind a little more about trying things outside of your comfort zone. For me that would be trying a single malt. Again The Bourbon Road encourages exploration. Thanks Guys.

Great for the bourbon beginner

Mike and Jim do a wonderful job of introducing beginners to bourbon and really show what bourbon culture is all about!

KY Culture in a Glass

Bourbon has deep roots in KY culture and The Bourbon Road keeps that culture going by sharing some great bourbon picks and history. With it being so hard (or impossible in some cases) to go visit distilleries this is a fantastic alternative (except I don’t get my tasting included 😂). Keep sharing the wealth of knowledge!
