A few of the distelleries are not on the trail but worthy of a visit. Check out all of the distelleraies in the area regardless of if they are on the trail or not.

Great tour with friends. Most all the tours have a fee, but there is always a tasting at the end. The amount and distance to other facilities will keep you above the legal limit. Bardstown is a gem of a little town. It's a great place to stay on the trail. Buffalo Trace is not on the trail, but it is a great tour.

Last year, I made my plans to do the Trail after a stop in Cincinnati. It appealed to me for the history and geography of the region, and that they have a passport and stamps, and for the T-shirt which was to be awarded at the end.

I enjoyed some distilleries more than others, because the interpreters and stories were better, but really, one is the same as the next. The process is exactly the same.

I spent from $5 to $15 for each of the tours. Some let us keep the tasting glass, some bourbons tasted better...it all runs together. I did buy some bourbon at Bulleit and at Woodford.

I collected the ten stamps, and then went to the Lexington Visitor Center for my T-shirt after collecting the Town Branch stamp. No T-shirt. You now have to BUY it for another $15. They did award me a shot glass. The decision to change the prize isn't well thought-out. That's advertising! Wherever that shirt is worn, they have a travelling billboard.

I'm going to have a shirt made that says "I did the whole Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and all I got was this lousy glass."

I'm

We've been to Buffalo Trace, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve. Couldn't get into the latter due to full bookings. Standby at Wild Turkey. Recommend you get reservations. You can also just do tastings for between $10 and $12 a person with expert commentary, but the interest is in the tours.

Be prepared to walk or climb. Ask about requirements. This is an interesting way to spend a few days. Off to Jim Beam and Maker's Mark tomorrow>

For many years, we wanted to go to the Kentucky bourbon trail. Finally, we did on a stormy spring weekend to celebrate a birthday. We started with Maker’s Mark distillery which is located on a beautiful country side very far from the highway. It is on an remote location. They were closing @3:30 pm unlike the others, that is why we started with them. Loved the tasting and their truffles. Be sure to buy the Maker’s 46 truffles! Then, we toured the Wild Turkey and Woodford reserve. On one day, you can visit four distilleries if you like to do the tours with bourbon tasting. Make sure to start early and have lunch at the Old Talbott Tavern.
