Whiskey Bear Bourbon & Chocolate

February 14, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm


It is said that Cupid’s arrows are forged from aphrodisiacs and alcohol, with the choice combination being chocolate and red wine. Unless of course, your Cupid has a Southern drawl, in which case his quiver will be filled with chocolate and bourbon. Looking for a fun way to celebrate with your Valentine? Join Whiskey Bear and Tim Knittel for a guided tasting of four Bourbons paired with their perfect chocolate match, plus a special chocolate-washed Bourbon cocktail. We’ll talk about the history and romance of Bourbon as well as learn to taste the nuanced chocolate and near-chocolate flavors of Bourbon. This is the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Bourbon country!

Tasting Flight includes:
– Chocolate-washed Benchmark Manhattan (half size cocktail)
– Knob Creek Single Barrel Butterscotch Jack, paired with milk chocolate
– Bulleit 10 Year, paired with dark chocolate
– Old Forester 1870, paired with cocoa nibs
– Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, paired with cardamom-infused dark chocolate
