BourbonBlog.com‘s Tom Fischer will present a series of Bourbon whiskey tastings at The Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF) this week in Miami.
Fischer is partnering with Coca-Cola to guide guests through a unique sensory experience of Bourbon whiskeys and how they can best be served with a Coke. While the “Bourbon and Coke” cocktail has always had its fan base among enthusiasts and tailgaters alike, this may be the first time an in-depth approach to the subject will be taken on in a session complete with a flavor wheel for experiencing the cocktail (see wheel below).
For the experience, Fischer selected the following Bourbon whiskeys for both an individual tasting of the whiskeys themselves and also as poured in a Bourbon and Coke cocktail…
Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve
Russell’s Reserve 10-Year-Old
Breaker Port Barrel Finished Bourbon
Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel Bourbon
It all happens in the Coca-Cola Kitchen on Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22. More information coming soon on the events and tickets links. Visit sobewff.org for more.
