I'm on a roll as of late. I've been on a plane almost every week since February and it's not stopping in April, nor will it stop in May or June. I'll be traveling off and on until mid-July, so I'm going to need to find another gear, settle in, and make sure to get my beauty sleep. The open road awaits! This morning I'm at SFO early awaiting my flight to Louisville along with this journey's partner-in-crime Julio Santos. Julio runs all of the operations in Redwood City and is a huge help to the spirits department in terms of managing inventory and keeping track of all my orders. Since he loves Bourbon and has taken a real shine to whiskey over the last few years, I thought I'd bring him along for the ride this time. We're scheduled to land in the Big L later this evening where we'll grab dinner and a few drinks before catching a few Zs. We've got a full day at Maker's Mark tomorrow putting together a new custom batch of Maker's 46 at cask strength. Considering our first experiment sold out in a matter of hours after sending the email, I'm assuming the demand is there for another round.
As usual, I'll be reporting from the road. Let's see if Kentucky has a few surprises up its sleeve this year.
