Canadian whisky’s got nothing on us. Our bourbon is sweeter, more flavorful, it tastes better and, let’s face it, it’s just far superior to anything our neighbors to the north could produce (save Shania Twain). I’m willing to put my liver on the line as collateral.
Tonight’s debate between bourbon advocate Bernie Lubbers and Canadian whisky ambassador Dan Tullio promises to be a fun, informative and entertaining discussion on all things whisk(e)y. There will also be a tasting of Canadian Club and Knob Creek — so you can decide for yourself which spirit you want knocking around your rocks glass. The free event is on Aug. 19 at the Jefferson Club. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the debate starts at 7. (This is the only time you’ll hear me rooting for Kentucky.)
