Knowing how much yours truly likes his Old Fashions (appropriate title - eh?), Manhattans and Bourbon flights, one of the younger entrepreneurs (in that famously labelled group, Millennials) I work with, passed this article along to me.
I didn't know there was... if there is...a sign up for e-mail page. I just follow on Twitter. Twitter can be hit or miss... I might miss a tweet and it gets shoved down to the bottom. This could be why things are tweeted over and over again by some companies. SO! I just check the websites every now and then. Email notification would be nice!
I'm with you on this erc, I enjoy a nice glass of bourbon but a flight is always better! Earlier this year, there were a few events around the country dubbed as the Bourbon Battles. There was one in NYC, Portland OR and of course Lexington KY. I'm doing a little poking around to see if there will be more events like this and will let you know what I'm able to find out.

I do not believe you can sign up for Traveler updates, but looking into that as well.
carat Don't start drinking that bourbon before 10 am though
Ha - it happens to the best of us! Thanks for the quick response and follow up
I know you'll update and I'll definitely get on the list - good stuff.
Hahaha! Thanks for catching that so quickly!! The correct link is: https://travel-brilliantly.marriott.com/
I guess my mind was focused on the bourbon. This past weekend I visited a distillery outside of Austin, TX, Treaty Oaks Distillery, and they had a blended bourbon that was super delicious. I didn't realize that blending a couple bourbons together for one drink was a thing. Have you heard of it before?
Thank you for the link (I was, of course, teasing, I know you wait until lunch ).
While you were in your hometown Treaty Oaks, I was likewise in Culpeper, Va. at Belmont Farm Distillery (famous for the tv show Moonshiners). Bourbon folks get touchy about the specs (must be at least 51% corn, new oak barrel and ABV requirements - does not have to be made in Kentucky - a great marketing ploy on the Colonels' part), I have sampled 'blended' bourbons vs. 'straight' (just recently at Smith Bowman in Fredericksburg, Va.) and some can be quite tasty.
As a Virginian, literally used to moonshine, white lightning, and grain - it don't bug me. As Billy Joel would say, back when I wore a younger man's clothes, grain and Welch's grape juice made for a quite an experience. But enough about my demons , thanks for your help.
