Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull

Got to see Ian Anderson perform at the Clay Center in Charleston a few weeks back. Ian, the leader of the band more popularly known as Jethro Tull, has been touring in recent years under his own name. He puts on a great show, has some great new material, but also gave us a tour through the most popular Tull material of the past. And you can see that he can still play the flute on one leg!

Bourbon Trail: Woodford Reserve

Photos from a tour of the Woodford Reserve distillery in Versailles, Kentucky. One of the stops on the Bourbon Trail, you get to see it all at work, from the series of open fermenters to where the liquor is distilled and kegged.

A bottle of the Double Oaked came home with me, and I’m having a sip right now.
