Trip Report -Oct 7 & 8,2005, Bourbon Trail TN & KY

Here is a summary of the events of the past two days during the trip thru Tennessee and Kentucky by several of the Site-members. Photos are included for your viewing pleasure.
The group assembled in Nashville, Friday morning. Participants were Bushie, Poverty Pete, Sundancer, Pogophile, and The Mayor and Mrs. Mayor. We met mid-morning and headed south thru Shelbyville TN. After a stop at a cheese-store that had us munching on Dairy products for the rest of the morning, We arrived in Lynchburg, the Home of the Jack Daniels Distilling Operation. Here are the guys at JD's



Bushie, Sundancer and Pogophile took the tour of the operation, learning all the mystical secrets of the Master Distillers and inhaling a consider amount of 'side-effects' of being close to all that Mash for any length of time. While they were sniffing thru the Barns, PovPete, Janet and I checked out the village. Even on a damp cool weekday there were quite a number of tourists in the area. The usual bus tours made up most of them. There also were a number of BMW motorcycles from the Northeastern States Motorcyle clubs in the area too. We saw hundreds of them everywhere we went in that part of Tennessee.
When the tour ended we gathered up our members and headed over to Mary Bobo's Boarding House Restaurant for a long anticipated luncheon. We had been on a standby list for that day for several weeks, and only got confirmation of having a table for 6 ready earlier this week.
Here are Paul and Janet at the entrance to the establishment as we prepped for Lunch.



The lunch was very nice, well planned and served in the traditional 'boarding house' format. We shared the table with folks from other parts of the country and one fellow from Great Britain. Conversation was interesting and the mealtime seemed to pass quickly.

Here is Pogophile describing the local whiskey lore at the table.



While the ambience was very nice, the food was more like the typical cafeteria food...OK, but not jumping out at you with the special qualities we had hoped for. We would urge you to try the place at least once for the experience, but we probably would not make long range reservations again !

From Lynchburg, We rode over to Tullahoma,TN and stopped at the George Dickel Distillery. Dickel is a small rural location that is almost forgotten in the rush for everyone to get to Lynchburg. It was a real 'down-home' kind of place. The guys took the tour, learning again about 'Sour-Mash' versus Bourbon Whiskies.

Here are Steve and Paul tagging along at the end of the group on the Dickel Tour. Note that Paul's hat seems to be inflating like a hot-air balloon from the after-effects of a long walk thru a warm heavy-aired storage barn!



Following the visit to Dikels, we loaded up and headed North to Nashville. Since the PowerBall jackpot WAS well over $200 million tonight, we decided that the karma of the group could be a good supporting reason to buy some Lottery tickets. The drawing is in a couple of hours...and if by chance we win, this will be the last post I do on Roadfood.com, and the last time I ever am within reach of the other contributors to the ticket purchasing group. (I have the tickets!!)

WE DID NOT WIN, SO I AM STILL HERE !! On the other hand apparently NO-ONE won, So we can try again !

I will add the description of the great meal Poverty Pete led us to in Nashville in chapter two posted tomorrow morning. Who would believe that we could find some really great Mexican dinners in NASHVILLE?? I will use this photo of Bushie downing his SECOND 45 oz Margarita during the dinner as the teaser for things to come in the second episode of this travel record!!



More to come !!
CHAPTER TWO- The Friday Night Dinner and Saturdays Tour---

Steve(Pov.Pete) had convinced us that after all the Comfort food a good Mexican Dinner would help balance the evening off. While we were a bit reluctant, we joined in and BOY, AM I GLAD WE DID! Steve led us back to Nashville where we said goodbyes to Pogophile and Sundancer, they both had family obligations that sent them home early. Then the four of us headed for the "LA HACIENDA" Mexican Restaurant. The place had NO ambience. Lots of bare tables and cheap straight back chairs...but they made up for that with some really great food and three sizes of Margaritas that were NOT all soft-drink and no tequila! They made a 16 oz (for Janet), 45 oz'ers for us, and the lady at the next table ordered a 60 oz. just to show us city-boys who was the meanest witch in Nashville !

The food was really good and not expensive at all.The chips and salsa and guacamole were fresh and quite tastie with the opening round of beverages. All dinners were under $10 and even with the big drinks the total tab for the food and bar for the four of us was just $60 even!!(plus tip)
Here is a shot of Steve's Fajitas and my Carnitas dinners just to show that we did do more than watch Bushie down the drinks!



We closed out the nite at the Country Inn near the airport...reasonable and new and clean ($62 total for Jan and I). Saturday morning we got off to a good start and headed back up I-65 into Kentucky. Our first stop was at the Woodford Reserve Distillery near Versailles, KY. Saturday was the opening day of the Fall Meet at Keenland Race track near the distillery, so the place had set up a couple of special events for the day. The public was invited to an art show and book signing in their visitors center and it looked to be a rather busy place as we came by. There was also a specail luncheon set up for invited guests. We were in that catagory, due to some advance contacting and being part of the internet 'fan club' for the place. There are times when being a member of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels is a real treat!
Anyway we came to their conference center and shared in a really nice buffet made up of all locally produced products using Bourbon in the recipes.

Here is Steve checking out the Buffet. The decorative plants were behind the serving tables but appear to be reaching out to grab the visitors !



The food was excellent. You can see the baked Squash, Candied Apricots, Roast Pork, Pickled Beets, Link Sausage, Beans, Cheese Souflle(sp?) Grilled Chicken, A wonderful Salmon and some other local vegetables




And for a LIGHT Dessert---
Pumpkin Pie with a Carmel-Bourbon sauce, A dark chocolate cake (with a bit of the sauce on it also, and a couple of locally produced Bourbon-filled Dark Chocolates.



While you digest all of this, let me say a word or two about the difference we found between the Tennessee and the Kentucky Distilleries. Setting aside any Corporate ties, or "chain" thoughts. We noticed that the image of the distilleries in Tennessee were a bit more 'laid-back' and working class in their make-up and locale. Dickel was a good example. Small, Kinda out of the way in a real woodsie setting with just a few pickup trucks around etc etc.
Woodford Reserve set the tone for the Kentucky Distilleries. Surrounded by Horse Farms in the heart of the Bluegrass region they appear to represent the "genteel" folks of the Kentucky 'Horse Set'. Here is a shot taken near the entrance to the WR plant, it is typical of the area you drive thru to get to the distillery. If you haven't driven around all the 'Million Dollar Horse Barns' do it sometime. What a beautiful area!!



I don't say this to create any argument or competition etc. But it extends beyond the 'Marketing Image' of the product. Both regions produce some excellent whiskey. It is interesting to me to see how the sub-cultures have evolved in different directions in the development of the product that both are well recognized for creating.

By this time we were full, and going a bit road-weary so we decided to purchase some memories of the tour and head in the direction of home.
Here are the samples that came along with te four of us



You can see that the guys have excellent taste and that we have enough samples to keep the tour in the front of our mind until the next time we hit the road! We drove past signs pointing to
Buffalo Trace
Heaven Hill
Makers Mark
Ancient Age
Four Roses
Jim Beam

Plus a bunch of the sub-brands of each of these distilleries. In Fact as we drove thru Bardstown the odor of the Mash could be 'tasted' as we passed by on the freeway. Hopefully next time we will have the energy to spend some time in Bardstown for not only the Bourbon locations but to do the Stephen Foster Story, a Summer evening Mucical production at the state park named for the author of "My Old Kentucky Home".

So we bid farewell to Bushie and Poverty Pete and headed up to fetch the dogs from their PET-RESORT and close this chapeter of the log with a parting shot of my two Roadfood Buddies as we split up

    I sure do like a good drink but two 45 ounce rita's???.

    I would have had to drive back to Knoxville as I would have been far to intoxicated to thumb

    Great pics Al. The area around that part of Tennessee is particularly beautiful. Pretty obvious that JD's has got its act together. Lynchburg was very crowded.

    Looks like you guys had a great time.
    I had the opportunity to visit the Jim Bean distillery back in 1999. This was a actually a weekend drive for me when I was living in Pittsburgh. It was great living in a part of the country where you can do those "long" weekend trips without getting snarled in traffic like you do in the Northeast Corridor

    Great thread & pics AL. This is one I was contemplating going to but didn't.


    Now I see why Bushie fell behind "THAT" sign...

    Consider posting your pics at http://www.flickr.com/ for all to see. Let me know if you do.

    A rare species of bird which is called a mileormore bird was flying overhead. I rarely see them in Knoxville.

    Naw Paul. I think WJ's response "MORE correct"...



    "mileormore bird"

    Sounds like my old '69 Firebird. Could pass anything except a gas station...

    OK Chapter Two was added in the original post above. We have recovered and are looking forward to the next get-together.
    For us the Road is calling again next weekend. We will take a week to visit my younger daughter who is about to bring forth grandchild number 22. So a couple of days in Wisconsin to see them, then a couple of days in the Door County area to walk the dogs along the Lake and get some Apples etc. Then home. We will spend one day at Rochelle Illinois at the train viewing park they have. It is a great place to picnic and watch the rail-action. This is a wonderful time of year to take off for a few days ride!!

    Thanks for the positive feedback. It was a really good weekend with everyone having a good time.
    We did win $10 on our $30 Powerball investment. Steve is going to let that $10 ride on the Wed Jackpot that should reach 240 million. At this rate we will be buying a single dollar ticket in 3 weeks to try for one final draw!!!

    I assume that I am in on that also. I feel very lucky and I like the odds. I think we will win. I have already spent the money

    That's only $40 million each, Paul. Not hardly enough to 'retire on'! Of course in my case both Janet and I bought 'a share' so with double that amount I can stay retired, and she can cut to one job at only 40 hours a week !!!. I don't know which she will give up...Scrubbing floors at the local White Castle or Waiting Tables at Waffle House. She'll keep the Nursing Home job so she can visit me on company time !!

    If we win we could enjoy another roadtrip or two in the near future!

    Al, with $40 Mil, I will assure you that I will come off my road trip next week from Ohio. I will spend the rest of my life on the deck and on the road with my roadfood friends.

    My first trip will be back to lexsington, TN to Hays. I will then get a limo to drive me back. Bushie and Steve and Pogo will probably get a jet to get them there. I am not sure what you and Janet will do?

    I asked the salesman, and was assured that my long-range helicopter will indeed be able to go to Hays' and back without refueling.
    Tiki, I mailed you a DVD from Lynchburg of the John Butler Trio. You should be getting it any day now.

    This former Kentuckian is really jealous. I wish we could have made the trip: I really would have enjoyed it. Plus, this weekend was the Battle of Perryville reenactment.

    Oh, well. Maybe next time...

    Kaileen,
    One of the best decisions I EVER made was to accept the buy-out early retirement offer from my job in SoCal. Linked to that was the move back here to the Louisville area. It has put a wonderful part of the USA within our reach for weekend sojourns.

    This coming weekend (after resting from the Bourbon Tour for a week), we will head Northwest for a week. NorthWest in this context will give us part of a day at Rochelle IL to enjoy the busy rail action where the BNSF and the Union Pacific lines cross. I love the sound and sight of the trains as they move thru this place. Then it will be up to Baraboo Wisconsin to visit my daughter and her family (soon to be expanded). She and her husband have already picked out some 'ethnic' food stops in the Central Wisconsin area for us to try. We will also visit the House on the Rock...something my wife has wanted to 'revisit' for years since we first stopped there about 10 years ago.
    Then it will be a drive thru the Door County area and thru the U P of Michigan to put us in the Brighton Michigan area on Friday, again to have a nice dinner with family there. We'll come on home on Saturday, ready to rest again for a bit before another Fall trip somewhere else. We have enjoyed November on the Gulf Coast previously, but feel that we need to stay out of the area until the recovery really takes shape. Biloxi and Gulf Shores are favorites of ours and we will get there again...but not now.
    This Bourbon Tour was fun as it let us have a good time with some really nice internet friends. At each of the meetings we have shared with folks from this group, we have enjoyed ourselves a lot. We were at the SoCal session and the Crabcake Fest in 2004, and three different meetings of this Tennessee/Kentucky tour-group. In addition we have enjoyed dinners and other get-togethers with individual members in various parts of the country.
    All in all we have found the Roadfood experience to be a great one, and hope to continue this activity for quite some time.
    I would encourage any and all of you who are part of the Roadfood 'Family' to try to include meeting some of your Roadfood friends when you venture out on a trip. Even if just for a lunch stop now and then, you will be amazed at how nice it is to meet and greet folks whom you exchange messages with all the time on the net.

    Al,

    I wish I could remember the name of the restaurant by the tracks in Rochelle, real local type of a place with good soups. Of course on your way to Rochelle you can try my favorite, Ron's Cajun Connection in Utica, Il. Ron's is at the first exit east of the i-90 & I-39 interchange... the Starved Rock exit.

    Al, have a great trip to Door County and be sure to do one of their fish boils.

    I truly enjoyed the time with the group and especially "The Mayor" and Janet.

    Smell it?? you could not believe it. At JD's the odor was so wonderful that you could intoxicated anywhere within a quarter of a mile. What was really good was when they raised the lid on the 10K gallon mash. I guess it was the carbon dioxide coming off the mash but it sure was good. The heat coming off this stuff was pretty good.

    Since you're already familiar with the area I'm guessing you know about the Wollersheim Winery (http://www.wollersheim.com). But on the off chance you've never been there, consider stopping by if you have a little extra time. Seems to me I might've mentioned this to you before but I can't remember for sure...

    Thanks Brad,
    I put it on the list of places to consider while we are in the Wisconsin area!
    We are printing up many of the archived recommendations from the forums to filter out some stops for the 3 days we will be in the area.
