If you're looking for something special in the bourbon world you can always go to the Lock & Key Whiskey Bar in Baton Rouge. Their selection of bourbon, as well as all other types of whiskey, is extensive to say the least. Plus, they are knowledgeable and passionate, which goes a long way. In fact, on Wednesday, January 28th from 6-8 PM I'll be at Lock & Key along with Myrna Arroyo from Roux Wine Tours to discuss our trip to Bourbon Country in July. The whiskey bar will be offering special flights that will go along with the distilleries that we'll visit in Kentucky including a Bardstown flight, a Frankfurt flight, and a Louisville flight. Mark your calendar and I hope to see you then.

However, if you're looking for some special bourbon to bring home with you one day, then you have to head over to Calandro's Supermarket. They have expertly selected barrels of various bourbons and bottled the whole thing for their stores, making each of these bourbons truly unique and unavailable anywhere else. Their single barrel bourbons include:
