Welcome from the President

Hello Bourbon Women,
Welcome to 2017. We have just enjoyed our first Bourbon Women event of the New Year, a fascinating exploration of world whiskey flavors at Louisville’s Irish Rover pub. Forty attendees (39 women and one intrepid man) tasted Glenglassaugh Revival Scotch, Teeling Single Malt Irish Whiskey, and Col. E.H. Taylor, Jr. Bottled-in-Bond Rye. All were enjoyable and elegant sips, but the general mood of the room was that we liked the rye (intriguing herbal and spice notes) the best, followed by the Irish (lightly floral and fruity), and then the Scotch (rather smoky, even though it was not peated).
I was very pleased to find that we had several new members attending their first BW event (Welcome!) and three of our Indianapolis branch members ventured to Louisville for the tasting (Go Indy!). Given the decibel level of the conversation during the tasting, I have no doubt that everyone was having an excellent time.
I also want to welcome four new Bourbon Women board of directors members –Brittany Allison, Natalie Clayton, Kim Dodson, and Nicole Twigg. Please click on our Board Members tab to read their biographies. And congratulations to Audrey Petty for a full year on the job as BW’s executive director. Thank you, Audrey, for all of your hard work!
Please keep reading to get details on upcoming events in Kentucky and all branches. I know we will be adding to the list as the year unfolds.
Next up in Louisville: Bourbon Women Night at Le Moo. This is one of the city’s premier steak restaurants, but even vegetarians will find some delicious dishes on the menu. Lee Moo will donate 10% of what we spend on dinner that evening to Bourbon Women. Please consider inviting friends and family for a terrific meal and another great chance to be with other members. The proceeds help fund future events, keep our web page up and running, and go toward what we set aside each year to give to charities.


Susan Reigler, Bourbon Women President
