There is a legendary Thoroughbred farm in Lexington known as Calumet, which has produced some of the greatest race horses in history, including eight Kentucky Derby and two Triple Crown winners. We gathered at the Oxmoor Country Club in Louisville for a bourbon tasting of products from the Western Spirits Beverage Company including Calumet, Lexington and Bird Dog.
The club provided a buffet with cheese and crackers, barbecue pork biscuit sandwiches and a mashed & sweet potato bar with toppings.
To cool our bourbon on this hot summer day, Spirits on Ice company demonstrated their cool Spirit Ice Vice machine that makes ice spheres.
For those who enjoy cigars, we ended the event with a tasting of quality, hand-rolled Dominican cigars just outside on the Veranda overlooking the golf course. The sampling was courtesy of Crossfire Cigars and presented by Jason Lois, one of the top competitive cigar smokers in the world.
