    Thank God for the commenters on this post because there are plenty of great bourbon bars that weren't mentioned above.

    Don't forget the Brandy Library in the NYC Tribeca area.
    But yes , I have more and probably rarer bourbons than most of the places in the article at home too.
    No wonder I don't get out as much as I used to.

    The Century Bar, A Bourbon House, Dayton, Ohio. Over 65 bourbons and a full raft of American and Canadian whiskeys!

    What about Ward III in TriBeCa, NY?

  • Thomas Teague posted 5 years ago

    You forgot Mac McGee in Decatur, Ga. They have over 400 whiskeys and age there own mini barrel series. There has to be over 100 bourbons, not exactly sure, but it is a crazy selection.

    Strange you've omitted America's largest whisk(e)y bar: Jack Rose in D.C?

    It is not a complete list without the Twisted Spoke in Chicago, Chicago's best Bourbon bar for the last 17 years.

    I'd have to say my favorite bourbon bar is Carter's Corner, Milton, WV....my man-cave. We put in the bar about 7 years ago and have been featuring all different 'flavors' of bourbon...having tastings for friends and family. We have over 25 bourbons (28)... Pappy 15 year, Lot B 12 year, Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year in 90 and 107, George T. Stagg 140.6 proof, Eagle Rare 17 and 10 year, Elmer T. Lee, Blanton's, Rock Hill Farms, Willett, Basil Hayden, Knob Creek, Makers Mark, Makers 46, Wild Turkey, Rare Breed, Kentucky Spirit, Buffalo Trace, W.L. Weller 7 yr., 12 yr., 107 Antique, Woodford Reserve, Woodford Oak Finish, 1792 Ridgemont Reserve, Fighting Cock, and Jim Beam. By far, my favorite is Van Winkle 12 yr. Special Reserve - Lot B.....but all bourbon is gooooood. Just neat.....no water, no ice.... (except George needs one ice cube). God's gift to mankind.
