Kentucky Bourbon Trail

Has anyone done this trip ? My wife and I are looking to get the coach out for a short two or three day trip. Someone told me leave the tow car at home and travel with just the coach. We have a 36 ft Country Coach , my concern is parking . We understand the drive is beautiful and lots to see.

We did part of it when we stayed at a campground in Frankfort a couple years back. I found I loved the smell of the bourbon in the air (you can smell it when you pull into the distillery parking lots - they call it the angel's share), just not the taste....unless it was in candy...Bourbon Truffles=YUM!!!

Although the parking lots at the distilleries we went to have room for tour busses, you can be navigating city streets/city traffic to get to some of them. In unfamiliar territory, where you might miss a turn, using a car is preferrable to a motorhome. Besides, they are all within an hour's radius of each other. Not worth the hassle of maneuvering with a motorhome, IMO.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Been there and done some of them. I t hink the best one to go to first is Buffalo Trace
distillery between Louisville and Franklin on I64. Best tour. Good samples at end of tour. Went to Wild Turkey, Lady didn't say much and gave us a label, didn't taste good. Went to another one but can't remember its name, it was closing. Got a few more to hit the next time I'm in Ky.

Agreed. They had the best pre-tour video. At the after tour taste, they give root beer for the kids so they aren't left out of the tasting.

Oh & re: the candy I mentioned prior, go to Rebecca Ruth's in downtown Frankfort. It looks like a house, but is a candy factory & showroom. Besides the normal bourbon balls, they've got a sampler box with several liquor candies in it. Old Kentucky Chocolates in Lexington has the yummy Bourbon truffles & great Bourbon soaked chocolate covered cherries.

If this trip also includes a trip to MAKERS MARK, I'd take the toad. Although they get their trucks in and out it's narrow and curvey. Parking lot can accomodate a RV. Very nice tour & way out in the country.

For whatever reason, Buffalo Trace has recently dropped out of the official bourbon tour. However, it's still a very good tour; we took some Indiana friends there last year. Another good tour is Woodford Reserve in Versailles, KY. More of a slick presentation and visitor center than Buffalo Trace, but well worth the short drive from Frankfort.
