Covington, Kentucky is right across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. They have a bourbon bar owned by Molly Wellman, nationally famous mixologist and cocktail author, Old Kentucky Bourbon Bar (OKBB). Going for a bourbon tasting there is like getting a PhD! The atmosphere is hip, yet focused: no televisions. I was very happy to be hosted to experience it.
