    part I, I talked about the different ways in which you can learn about bourbon, from following

    Whiskey Bar.  In 

    part II, I talked about trying new bourbons at events and festivals, such as 

    The Kentucky Bourbon Festival 


    the Legends Series.  In 

    Part III, I talked about touring distilleries, and in 

    Part IV, I talked about bourbon as a food group (see my Bourbon Soaked Easter Dinner menu 


    Well, now it's Derby time in Louisville, and if you haven't started your Citizen Bourbon Ambassador training yet, there's no time like the present.  Here's an
