Do you love single barrel bourbon at barrel strength or proofed down?
Jim and I were handed a single barrel release by the fine folks at Leiper’s Fork Distillery on our last visit that we are pretty excited about.
It will be released in the Leiper’s Fork Distillery gift shop on the 4th of July weekend.
If you haven’t visited Leiper’s Fork you’re missing out. Pay these fine folks a visit and see what true southern hospitality is all about.
We hope you enjoy The Bourbon Road’s review. Be sure to catch the podcast episode on your favorite platform. Cheers!
