Nice! No way were you disappointed. SD-Wineaux poured some Pappy at his bday, and it was amazing.

Can you pick out some of your favorites during your trip? Eagle Rare 10 year is my bourbon of choice, but I'm currently finishing a bottle of Rowan's Creek, and I just picked up a bottle of Old Bardstown Estate.

The Pappy was one of the few times that a beverage experience easily outweighed my expectation. Absolutely fantastic and maybe my favorite alcohol experience to date.

Of the visits we made, Maker's Mark might have been our favorite for the combination of tour quality, setting and tasting lineup.

Did you do the bourbon trail? We were out in Elizabethtown for a wedding and ran up to the Beam distillery. Tour was informative, but man, maybe its our background with wineries, but the whole two "one ounce tastes" sure puts a damper on getting to try a whole lot. I'd rather post up at a bar and try a bunch rather than drive 30 minutes between distilleries.
We just decided to take a weekend in the area. My wife found out about a dinner theater event that was taking place at Buffalo Trace. It included a tour beforehand, bourbon cocktail, the play, and a three course dinner with some bourbons for $60 all-in. Good value and a fun time. We didn't keep a passport and get it stamped. However, we also fit in visits at Four Roses, Wild Turkey, Maker's and the Evan Williams Experience in downtown Louisville. At the latter, the "speakeasy tasting" was fun. Like you mentioned, I also ordered pours on my own at a couple of local bars that had nice selections. The Pappy was available at a nice restaurant called Bourbon's Bistro in Louisville.

Side note - just about everyone we came across in the area was extremely polite, friendly and fun. We had a very enjoyable weekend all around. Louisville Slugger factory tour was cool. I would definitely visit the area again without hesitation. It is an easy six hour drive from where we live.
