Staff at J. Timothy’s Taverne in Plainville recently traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to the Old Forester Bourbon distillery to select their own exclusive Old Forester Bourbon barrel. After a series of taste tests from single barrels, the staff chose one with tasting notes of cocoa, vanilla and hot chocolate with “smooth flavor, yet spicy” on the finish with vanilla, cardamom, cocoa and caramel. To celebrate their exclusive barrel, J. Timothy’s hosted a Single Barrel Celebration on November 18 where guests enjoyed bourbon inspired food, creative cocktails and Old Forester Single Barrel neat. Photos from the event will appear in the January issue of The Beverage Journal.
